WASHINGTON (CNA) – A meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese
President Xi Jingping (習近平) set to take place in Beijing this November should not have any major effect on Taiwan, a scholar told CNA Monday.
Brookings Institution senior fellow Richard Bush said Taiwan will not be a bargaining chip in the Trump-Xi discussions.
Bush, who serves as co-director of the institution’s Center for East Asia Policy Studies, said it would not be a good idea to use Taiwan as a bargaining chip, nor does it really fit with U.S. interests.
Therefore, he concluded that he is not very concerned about the impact that the Trump-Xi summit could have on Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
