Washington, Jan. 29 (CNA) U.S. intelligence agencies indicated Tuesday that they expect
Beijing to continue its efforts to force Taiwan to accept its “One China” framework and ultimately Chinese control.
Top U.S. security officials, including Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Christopher Wray, Central Intelligence Agency Director Gina Haspel and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, presented their annual global threats assessment to the Senate intelligence committee on Tuesday.
According to the assessment, Beijing will almost certainly continue to use both pressure and incentives to try to force Taipei to accept its One China framework and eventually Chinese control.
Moreover, China continues to monitor U.S. reaction to gauge its resolve in the region, the report said. [FULL STORY]
