China responds to Biden with "force" on Taiwan .. a serious violation

Beijing on Monday condemned the statements of US President Joe Biden, who confirmed that his country would defend Taiwan in the event of a Chinese invasion, considering them a "serious violation" of Washington's policy on the island.


"It is a serious violation of an important commitment made by the United States not to support Taiwan independence, and it sends a wrong and dangerous message to the separatist forces active for Taiwan independence," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning told reporters.


Biden's statements


Earlier, the US President stressed that his country would defend Taiwan, in the event of a Chinese military invasion, in an interview broadcast on Sunday.

When asked in an interview with "60 Minutes" on CBS whether US forces would defend the self-governing island claimed by China, Biden replied: "Yes, if there is an unprecedented attack in reality."
