Newsturning to Taiwan, the United States will not abandon Ukraine

turning to Taiwan, the United States will not abandon Ukraine


Washington is increasingly faced with the choice of continuing its military support for Kyiv or investing more in weaponizing Taipei, writes the Washington Post.

The idea that the United States must choose between supporting Ukraine or bolstering the defense of Taiwan has migrated from Fox News into the mainstream of foreign policy discussions in Washington. Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Missouri) straddled the debate, saying extended US military assistance to Ukraine distracts from the more pressing task of arming Taiwan to deter a Chinese invasion.

  • says the article.

In the United States, there are two completely different views on this. Proponents of the former believe Kyiv’s firm support will scare Beijing away from decisive action in Asia. However, there is another opinion.

Ukraine will not influence Beijing’s decision to attack Taiwan. Here, the military balance in Asia is more important to contain the risk.

Elbridge Colby, a former Trump administration spokesperson at the Pentagon, said during a recent debate at the Hudson Institute.

Congress has another decision to make on whether to provide more aid to Ukraine this fall. Former President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, early frontrunners for the 2024 Republican nomination, have previously questioned continued US aid to Ukraine.
