President Joe Biden has stated that US soldiers would defend Taipei in the event of a “unprecedented attack” by the People’s Liberation Army, which may transform Chinese President Xi Jinping’s dream of uniting the breakaway Republic of Taiwan with the mainland into a nightmare (PLA). This is the fourth occasion that the US President and Chief Executive has publicly declared that America would defend Taiwan, notwithstanding the White House’s clarification following Biden’s remarks. As in the past, the White House clarified following the announcement that US policy towards Taiwan had not changed.

President Joe Biden said in his most direct interview with CBS’s 60 Minutes that if the Chinese Army launched an unprecedented attack on the island nation, he would support US forces defending it.
