11:09 am
connected le band to pillows this trip to tie one. zachary, stay with me. i want to get some context here as china issues a clear warning of a policy not to travel to taiwan. tensions between the us and china of the island have been building for some time with each side, blaming the other over the escalation. let's have a look at how this unfold. he jeff james hefnel. don't play with fire all high. that was chinese president. she jan ping's message to was us counterpart joe biden . in the most recent talks, china claims the u. s. is dangerously close to crossing a line on taiwan with its messages of support for the islands. independence in may . biden broke with years of u. s. policy by promising military support. if china tried to invade are you willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan? if it comes to that, yes, you are. as a commitment,
11:10 am
we made the u. s. as china is the one disrupting the status quo. over the past year, she jan ping has provoked taiwan with incursions into its air space and calls for an end to taiwanese self rule. fool, i'm sure the historical mission of the reunification of the motherland must be and will surely be realised. negotiate a jing sees the island as the chinese territory temporarily occupied by the political airs of those who lost the chinese civil war. 1949. since then, taiwan has governed itself, running regular military and civilian drills to prepare for a possible chinese invasion. to pass that china has laid out off is neither a free and democratic way of life. the taiwan no sovereignty for 23000000 people. many in the west see it as a fight between democracy and authoritarianism. but that's not the only reason why the u. s. is involved. taiwan is integral to u. s. strategy to check china's power in the pacific. the taiwan strait is one of
11:11 am
the most important shipping lanes and global trade. and the majority of the world's advanced semiconductors, used in everything from smartphones to cars. joke are made on the island, tries to relocate product in line. if china successfully imposes its rule on taiwan, that would be a big blow to the u. s. in a victory for she jam packed utah. he did, but he was, and biden, untie both have a lot to lose. should they know a full blown war could be the worst case scenario for both their country swan could be on cobra. that like i back with the w correspondence act really in taipei. so what's at stake here for tie one, zachary, could they benefit really from this kind of visit, keeping in mind that leading members of the body administration have made it clear . this is just a private trip exactly. well, but you have to note that pelosi is actually taken in lie to you as president. see if she really be this tie was she will be the highest ranking us politician to
