USG official says U.S. doesn’t support Taiwan’s independence, warns China against applying military pressure

NHK reported online this morning that NSC Indo-Pacific Coordinator Campbell said during a debate hosted by a think tank on Tuesday that while the United States does not support Taiwan’s independence and will continue to deal with China based on the “One China” principle, he warned China against applying military pressure by saying: “We need to signal when China has taken steps that are completely antithetical to the international order.” The network said Campbell also said Washington supports a “strong unofficial relationship with Taiwan” and stressed that the United States will work closely with Japan and other allies over the Taiwan Strait issue. He reportedly said: “The United States has extraordinarily important interests in the maintenance of peace and stability.” The network added that Campbell expressed hope that President Biden and Chinese leader Xi will hold their first in-person summit “before too long.” TV Asahi carried a similar story.
