Joe Biden has stated that if China attacks Taiwan, the US will defend it. Mr. Biden stated that citizens should not be concerned about Washington's military strength since "China, Russia, and the rest of the world know we have the most powerful military in history."

"What you have to be concerned about is whether or not they will engage in activities that will place them in a position where they may make a serious error," he continued.

China claims that they own Taiwan. Taiwan, on the other hand, claims to be an independent country that will safeguard its freedoms and democracy. 

Mr. Biden said that a cold war with China is not something he wants. However, he said that the US wants the country to "understand that we're not going to back down" and alter its views.

The Taiwan Relations Act governs the US defence relationship with Taiwan, and the country's policy toward the territory has not changed. "We will uphold our obligation under the act," a White House spokesperson said. "We will continue to support Taiwan's self-defense and oppose any unilateral changes to the status quo."

China claims Taiwan is the most sensitive and significant subject in its relations with the US, and it has accused Washington and Taipei of "collusion."

Nations Ambassador Zhang Jun stated that they are pursuing "peaceful reunification" with Taiwan. "We aren't the ones causing the trouble. On the contrary, some countries, particularly the US, are pursuing dangerous moves, escalating the situation in the Taiwan Strait," he stated.

"I believe that at this time, we should ask for the US to cease such practises.  It is in no one's interest to drag Taiwan into a war. I don't see how the US will benefit from that."
