LDP politicians welcome President Biden’s comment on defense of Taiwan

Sankei reported online that during an LDP meeting on Tuesday morning, the ruling party’s Foreign Affairs Division Chairman, Sato Masahisa, expressed gratitude for President Biden’s remark that the United States would come to the defense of Taiwan militarily if it were attacked by the Chinese. “It was the best slip of the tongue by a U.S. leader,” the LDP lawmaker said: “With this remark, the United States made a departure from its strategic ambiguity…. In view of the President’s remark, it is extremely important for Japan to strengthen both its diplomatic and defense capabilities.” Another LDP official said: “The remark represents the U.S. defense commitment to Taiwan. It will help ensure stability in East Asia.”
