President Biden pressures Republicans over debt ceiling adjustment[워싱턴=AP/뉴시스] U.S. President Joe Biden speaks about the debt ceiling adjustment at the White House on April 4, 2019.

[천지일보=이솜 기자] US President Joe Biden has announced that the US will intervene to protect Taiwan if China attacks Taiwan.

According to Newsis and CNN on the 22nd, President Biden made this statement at a town hall meeting held at the Baltimore Center Stage in Methylland on the 21st (current time).

When asked whether the United States would defend itself when China attacks Taiwan, Biden replied: “Yes, we have a duty to do so,” and “we are committed to that.”

The United States signed a Mutual Defense Treaty with Taiwan in 1955, but with the establishment of diplomatic ties with China in 1979, it abolished the legal obligation to protect Taiwan.

However, President Biden said in an interview with ABC News in August that “there are fundamental differences between South Korea, Taiwan and NATO” about the Afghan crisis, indicating that the US will respond in case of invasion of Taiwan. has been indirectly expressed, but this day’s remarks raised the level of the level.

Recently, US and Canadian ships passed through the Taiwan Strait, and China mobilized military aircraft in the Taiwan Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) in response to this, further heightening military tensions.

When the United States established diplomatic ties with China in 1979, it recognized the ‘one China’ principle and cut off exchanges with Taiwan.

Although the United States has adhered to the ‘one China’ principle, it has continued its informal relationship with Taiwan by enacting the Taiwan Relations Act, which allows trade and cultural exchanges with Taiwan and enables the export of defensive weapons.

Although the Taiwan-related law is a rather vague system as a whole, it does include a provision allowing the US to provide arms for export to Taiwan so that Taiwan can maintain sufficient self-defense capabilities.

Meanwhile, President Biden announced at a press conference on the same day that he would consider deploying the National Guard to calm the logistics turmoil caused by the spread of the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19).

President Biden also blamed the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) for not increasing supply, saying that the price of oil will fall next year, but there is no short-term breakthrough.
