China is saying there is “no room” for compromise or concessions over the issue of Taiwan, following a comment by U.S. President Joe Biden that the U.S. is committed to defending the island if it is attacked.

A Foreign Ministry spokesperson reasserted China’s longstanding claim that the island is its territory. China has recently upped its threat to bring Taiwan under its control by force if necessary by flying warplanes near the island and rehearsing beach landings. The spokesperson says China's strong determination to defend its national sovereignty and territorial integrity should not be underestimated.
