WASHINGTON -- As China ramps up military pressure on Taiwan, U.S. lawmakers have increased calls for more clarity regarding America's policy to deter any Chinese attempts to alter the status quo.

In an interview with Nikkei, Rep. Ami Bera, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Asia, the Pacific, Central Asia, and Nonproliferation, said "there needs to be more clarity," and that it is a debate that is taking place in Congress and in the subcommittee that he leads.
