Expert explains problems with U.S.'s Taiwan Relations Act

During her visit to China's Taiwan region last week, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi repeatedly referenced the Taiwan Relations Act, which aims to send more weapons and military equipment to the region.

In an interview with Kan Taihai, a new media platform, Zhang Tengjun, deputy director of Asia-Pacific Studies at the China Institute of International Studies, noted that the Taiwan Relations Act is full of legal problems.

Zhang pointed out that the act was passed on April 10, 1979, after establishing diplomatic ties between China and the U.S. on January 1, 1979, when the U.S. broke off diplomatic relations with Taiwan.
