As mentioned earlier, after the end of the visit to Xi Jinping, a war of words about "Does Biden support Taiwan independence?" This war of words is just a suitable entry point. Let us analyze whether Biden has "sold the table"? The reason why this war of words broke out is that after the meeting with Xi Jinping, China's "People's Daily" and "Xinhua News Agency" immediately reported the content of the meeting. In the content of the talks published by these two media, the remarks that "the United States adheres to the 'one China policy' and does not support Taiwan independence." However, in the minutes of the meeting put forward by the White House, there was no such sentence as "does not support Taiwan independence", but only emphasized that "the United States strongly opposes unilaterally changing the status quo or undermining the peace and stability of the Taiwan Strait." In an interview with the media, Bousha added: Yes, we are very clear about our support for the Taiwan Act.
It is independent and makes its own decisions. Shortly after making the above remarks, Biden clarified his Taiwan policy for the second time to the media, saying: What I'm saying is, they have to decide. They are referring to Taiwan, not us (the US). We don't encourage independence, we encourage them to do exactly what the Taiwan Law requires, that's what we're doing, let them make up their minds. Regarding the war of words "Does Biden support Taiwan independence?", the first thing we need to think about is why China has declared that "the United States does number list not support Taiwan independence". Comparing the post-conference statements and reports published by the United States and China, we can find that "the United States does not support Taiwan independence" is clearly the CCP "speaking on behalf of Biden."

Among them, "one Chinese table" means that the Kuomintang believes that representing one China is the Republic of China; while the Communist Party believes that representing one China is the People's Republic of China. However, between the United States and China, there is actually another "one China, each table". That is, when talking about "one China", the United States is talking about the "one China policy" and China is talking about the "one China principle". Although the "One China Policy" and the "One China Principle" are only two words apart, the meaning behind them is vastly different. For those who have studied US-China relations and the Taiwan Strait issue for a long time, distinguishing the difference between the "one-China policy" and the "one-China principle" is the basis for discussing this issue, but for most ordinary people, the distinction may not be clear What is the difference between "policy" and "principle"? But even if you don't know the difference between the two, don't feel discouraged.
