Biden announces US military’s thoughts on Taiwan


(MENAFN) U.S. Leader Joe Biden proposed on Wednesday that the national military seek objections to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s possible trip to Taiwan.

His remarks followed two days of stern warnings from Beijing that the trip could irreparably ruin Sino-US ties.

“I think the military thinks it’s not a good idea right now. But I don’t know what his status is,” Biden told the media after receiving a question about Pelosi’s possible visit to Taiwan.

He spoke to the press on Air Force One, returning to Washington from Massachusetts, where he revealed the executive’s decisions on climate change.

According to multiple media outlets on Tuesday, Pelosi wanted to take a congressional delegation to Taipei next month, after canceling the visit in April after contracting Covid-19.

Pelosi or the Taipei administration have not officially confirmed or denied the rumor.
