The U.S. policy of "strategic ambiguity" toward Taiwan remains unchanged, US President Joe Biden told reporters in Tokyo after the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue summit (Australia, India, the United States and Japan) on Tuesday, the White House press pool reported.

The head of the Washington administration said Monday at a press conference in Japan, answering a question from a member of the media, that he was prepared to defend Taiwan militarily if the need arose. As the press pool explains, Biden was asked Tuesday if his words meant that "the policy of strategic ambiguity" was a thing of the past. "No," the head of state said. He declined to reveal any details.

 “My policy has not changed at all. I stated that when I made my statement yesterday,” he told reporters when asked if the U.S. was prepared to send troops to Taiwan if necessary.

The White House said Monday that the U.S. position remains unchanged, and Biden reiterated with his statement a commitment "to provide military means of self-defense to Taiwan." The Chinese Foreign Ministry responded to the American president's statement with a strong protest.
