‘Political Ambiguity’ Policy Remains in Taiwan-U.S. Relations

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.2

In spite of recent comments by President Biden on helping Taiwan in case of a Chinese invasion, since 1979 the U.S. implemented the ‘Political Ambiguity’ policy. This means the U.S. would provide for Taiwan the means to defend itself, but would not get involved if the island is invaded. These comments come in the context of the infamous withdrawal and Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.
