Rachael Maskell

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, with reference to the comments of the President of the United States on US support for Taiwan in the event of Chinese military action on 23 May 2022, what assessment she has made of implications for those comments for her policies on UK support for Taiwan.

The UK’s longstanding position on Taiwan has not changed. We consider the Taiwan issue one to be settled peacefully by the people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait through constructive dialogue. We are concerned by any activity that risks destabilising the status quo.
