Taiwan will be defended militarily if China it control Quest to self ruled Island.

The President if America: Joe Biden on Monday vowed that US forces would defend Taiwan militarily if China attempted to take control of the self-ruled island by force, warning Beijing was already flirting with danger.

The remarks, made in Tokyo where he is meeting with Japan’s prime minister ahead of a regional summit Tuesday, were Biden’s strongest to date on the issue and come amid rising tensions over China’s growing economic and military power.

Washington and allies like Japan have framed their tough response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine as a warning to others, especially China, against unilateral military action.

Biden hammered that message home after talks with Japanese Prime Minister, Fumio Kishida, in which the pair agreed to monitor Chinese naval activity and joint Chinese-Russia exercises.

Biden then went further.

Asked if Washington was willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan, he replied: Yes.
