US President Joe Biden held his debut East Asian tour this week, and sparked a furious response from China when he appeared to suggest that the US would intervene militarily if Taiwan were attacked. This marked a departure from the previous White House position of strategic ambiguity on Taiwan. We discuss the implications of Biden's comments and broader takeaways from his visit to South Korea and Japan, including the launch of the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework with Tokyo-based journalist William Pesek.
