On Monday, US President Joe Biden revealed that the U.S. would intervene militarily if China invaded Taiwan.
Biden explained that the burden to protect Taiwan is “even stronger’ after Russia invades Ukraine.
Sources said the statement is considered one of the most forceful presidential statements supporting self-governing in decades.
“That’s the commitment we made,” Biden said.
Acting on Biden’s statement, China is not happy with the statement since it considers Taiwan a rogue province.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin expressed “strong dissatisfaction and resolute opposition” to Biden’s comments.
“China has no room for compromise or concessions on issues involving China’s core interests such as sovereignty and territorial integrity,” Wenbin said.
“China will take firm action to safeguard its sovereignty and security interests, and we will do what we say,” Wenbin added.
