TOKYO — There is no change in U.S. policy towards Taiwan, a White House official said on Monday, after President Joe Biden earlier signaled a willingness to use force to defend the island nation if it came under attack.

“As the President said, our policy has not changed,” said the White House official, who declined to be named.

“He reiterated our One China Policy and our commitment to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. He also reiterated our commitment under the Taiwan Relations Act to provide Taiwan with the military means to defend itself.”
