The U.S. State Department Website Updated Its “Us-Taiwan Relationship” Page

On May 5th, the US State Department website updated its “US-Taiwan relationship” page and emphasized that Taiwan is a key U.S. partner in the Indo-Pacific region, adding the words like “the Six Assurances” and removing the statements such as “The United States does not support Taiwan independence” in the previous version.

In the 2018 edition, the U.S. government took a clear position at the beginning that “the United States recognized the Government of the People’s Republic of China as the sole legal government of China, acknowledging the Chinese position that there is but one China and Taiwan is part of China” and emphasized that “the United States does not support Taiwan independence and maintaining strong, unofficial relations with Taiwan is a major U.S. goal.”

However, in the latest edition updated on May 5th, the U.S. rephrased the bilateral relationship and defined Taiwan as “a key U.S. partner in the Indo-Pacific”, saying “The United States and Taiwan share similar values, deep commercial and economic links and strong people-to-people ties” and describing it as “the impetus for expanding U.S. engagement with Taiwan”.
