It’s Time To Change America’s Alliance Approach In Asia

by Miles Maochun Yuvia Military History in the News
Tuesday, December 5, 2017

Last week marks the 63rd anniversary of the signing of the Mutual Defense Treaty between the United States of America and the Republic of China. The historic mutual defense treaty, signed on December 2, 1954 in Washington, provided an ironclad guarantee to keep Taiwan from being invaded by the People’s Republic of China between 1955 and 1979. Since President Jimmy Carter unilaterally terminated the vital treaty on January 1, 1979, Taiwan has been subjected to constant threats of invasion by the communist government in Beijing, as the subsequent Taiwan Relations Act does not guarantee direct military assistance to Taiwan if China invades the island democracy.

The previous year, I had hosted his predecessor, Sergey Kislyak, for a private discussion and public talk at Stanford as well.
