China Riled by US Move on Taiwan in New Bill
On Dec 31, President Donald Trump signed into law the Asia Reassurance Initiative Act, which will beef up US presence in the Indo-Pacific region and support measures. Assoc Prof Li Mingjiang from RSIS, said that even though the contents of the Bill are mostly reiterations of what the US has been saying about its Indo-Pacific strategy, Beijing will see this legal move as a concrete step by Washington to implement this much-talked-about game plan.
