WH confirms Biden's remarks on Taiwan independence

A senior United States administration official confirmed that US President Joe Biden told his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping that Washington does not support the independence of Taiwan.

The US government "reiterated at various points over time" that "it is not something that the United States supports," the official told reporters, according to a White House transcript released on Tuesday.

"I don't think that's anything that's particularly new or different. It has certainly been a part of U.S. policy," the official clarified.
