Blinken to make major China policy speech this week

U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken will make a major policy speech on Thursday at George Washington University detailing the Biden administration’s approach to relations with China.

“The Asia Society will host Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken in delivering an address outlining the administration's policy toward the People’s Republic of China at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 26, 2022,” said the State Department in a statement. Blinken’s China speech was postponed after the secretary tested positive for COVID-19 on May 4.

Blinken’s remarks will follow U.S. President Joe Biden’s visit to Japan where he said the U.S. would be willing to intervene militarily to defend Taiwan if China were to invade the island democracy. Biden later clarified there is no change to the U.S. policy of strategic ambiguity on Taiwan.
