“If the Taiwanese authorities, pushed by the United States, continue on the path to independence, it will most likely (will) engage China and the United States, the two great powers, in a military conflict,” he added. CNN, Saturday (29/1/2022).

Asked for comment, the US Department of Defense said the United States remained committed to its “one China” policy and its commitments under the US Taiwan Relations Act.

Under the old policy, Washington officially recognized Beijing rather than Taipei, while the move required the United States to provide Taiwan with the means to defend itself.
