U.S. moves to protect Taiwan, brushes off Chinese protest

The development underscores U.S. efforts at bolstering Taiwan’s independence and securing its economy, the 7th largest in Asia, from Beijing, which has laid claims on the island as its own. Given the geopolitical scenario in the Korean peninsula, the development also has implications for China’s ally – North Korea.

In what is slated to be a clear signal to Beijing by Washington that it will continue to support an independent Taiwan, the U.S. has signed into law an act which authorizes the possibility of U.S. and Taiwanese navy vessels to dock in each other’s ports.

The move also places U.S. forces close to China’s ally North Korea.

Predictably, China has reacted angrily, with Lu Kang, its Foreign ministry spokesman, stating during a daily news briefing that China was firmly opposed to the Taiwan content in the U.S. act.
