Biden added that China had no right to seize the island by force.

Asked by a journalist whether the US would defend Taiwan militarily in the case of an attack, Biden replied: “Yes’’.

“That’s a commitment we made,’’ he added.

He stated that a forcible takeover of Taiwan would dislocate the entire region, and was comparable to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“We remain committed to supporting the peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait and ensuring that there is no unilateral change to that status quo,’’ Biden added.

The briefing was a joint news conference with Japanese Prime Minister, Fumio Kishida.

China is flirting with danger with its current maneuvers around Taiwan, Biden warned, while adding that he did not expect China to attempt an attack on Taiwan.
