Steinberg discusses Biden's China policy review in National Interest

May 14, 2021

The National Interest

Since 1979, the U.S. has taken a “one China” position: the United States recognizes the People's Republic of China as the sole legal government of China (PRC) but only acknowledges the Chinese position that Taiwan is part of China. Thus, the U.S. maintains formal relations with the PRC and has unofficial relations with Taiwan. In his article, "Brace Yourself for the Outcome of Biden’s China Policy Review," published in the National Interest, University Professor James Steinberg discusses why "there are powerful reasons to sustain the One China policy, but equally powerful reasons to adapt it to meet the realities of today."
