Stephen Bryen: Mixed Messaging on Taiwan

Broadcast Running Time: 17:54

Chairman Xi of China and President Biden met last month to discuss Taiwan and they announced that they had agreed to stick to the Taiwan Agreement.  But both Taiwan and our own State Department are unsure of what that means.  Joining us to discuss this is Stephen Bryen (centerforsecuritypolicy.org), Senior Fellow at the Center for Security Policy.  He explains the history of what is actually a series of Taiwan assurances – not one agreement – and how if President Biden doesn’t know anything about this history, can he be trusted to come to the aid of an ally?  No one is exactly sure who is in charge at the White House, but if a clear anti-aggression foreign policy regarding China and Taiwan isn’t expressed, Taiwan could soon suffer a similar fate as Hong Kong.
