NEW YORK -- A comprehensive American strategy on China under President Joe Biden's administration is still in the works, but Washington has promised to approach the Taiwan issue with "steadiness and clarity and resolve."

"The American position on this is quite straightforward," U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan said Friday at a virtual forum held by the Aspen Institute. "We believe in the 'One China' policy, the full implementation of the Taiwan Relations Act, the six assurances ... and we oppose unilateral changes to the status quo."
