This is the June 15, 2017 hearing on "Renewing Assurances: Strengthening U.S.-Taiwan Ties," held before the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Asia and the Pacific of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Ted Yoho: "The People's Republic of China is no longer the third party to a great power competition between the United States and the Soviet Union. It has become a challenger, seeking to attain great power status for itself by overturning a peaceful unipolar order. Despite this, our One China Policy has remained virtually unchanged since 1979. It is important for Congress to consider whether our policies are still serving us well and how we might improve them. In particular, renewing our assurances to Taiwan to continue and steadfast U.S. support is especially important. We have convened this hearing today to work toward these goals, and I thank the witnesses and I thank my colleagues for joining me today to help strengthen U.S.-Taiwan ties." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Rupert J. Hammond-Chambers, Dan Blumenthal, and Russell Hsiao.
