Austin says the president was unambiguous in his answers to Zakaria’s questions.

According to Zakaria, Biden went above and beyond what was declared US policy. He inquired of Austin: Is the American military equipped to do that?

As Austin says, “the American military is always ready to uphold our promises and preserve our interests.”

He continued, “I believe the president was unambiguous in his responses as he addressed a speculative query.” However, we will continue to ensure that we have the appropriate capabilities in the proper locations to support our allies in maintaining a free and open Indo-Pacific.

Since the 1970s, when the United States finally acknowledged China, which considers Taiwan a part of its territory, American policy toward Taiwan has been murky in many respects. After Mao Zedong won the protracted civil war in China in 1949, nationalist forces fled to Taiwan, and China consistently made it plain that it wanted Taiwan back.

Austin informed Zakaria, “We don’t want to see a unilateral alteration to the status quo.”
