US official takes question on China military harassment in phone briefing (2020/09/15)

U.S. Department of State official David Stilwell fielded questions from journalists around the world this week in a telephone briefing. Stilwell, who is the assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs, took a question from a Taiwan journalist, who asked what the U.S. would do to help maintain peace in the Indo-Pacific region. He laid out several strategies and said the U.S. would insist that regional issues are resolved in a peaceful manner.

Last month, Stilwell joined Taiwan’s Minister of Economic Affairs Wang Mei-hua and Taiwan’s representative to Washington Hsiao Bi-khim in virtual forum. This week Stilwell dialed into a telephone briefing with international journalists to speak about the situation in the Asia Pacific.

Secretary Pompeo and his foreign minister counterparts noted that job number one is combating coronavirus, COVID-19, and energizing economic recovery. The United States is moving quickly to develop a vaccine and make that vaccine available in the United States, in the Indo-Pacific and around the world. Secretary Pompeo also spoke about Beijing’s matter of highly aggressive bullying in the South China Sea, in the Mekong region and Hong Kong.

Stilwell referenced remarks made by Pompeo at the 10th East Asia Summit Virtual Foreign Ministers’ Meeting earlier this month. Pompeo had called on ASEAN member states to rethink their cooperation plans with China and condemned Beijing’s aggressive actions in the South China Sea. Stilwell also took a question about China’s military harassment of Taiwan. He emphasized that the U.S. has been demonstrating its resolve to prevent “unhelpful military adventurism.”

Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs
The United States has maintained its presence in the region and demonstrated our resolve to prevent unwelcome and certainly unhelpful military adventurism. The U.S. has been very vocal, as I’m sure you have seen, the secretary has been extremely vocal in identifying this as a significant U.S. interest and concern. And we are both in physical presence, from the military, in the diplomatic sense and all the things that I just mentioned just now, through economics or in other ways.

Stilwell said the U.S. was maintaining a presence that was of military, diplomatic and economic nature. Economically, the U.S. announced trade talks with Taiwan after it lifted a ban on U.S. pork. Less than a month after the ban was lifted, a U.S. under secretary is about to visit Taiwan, according to reports.

Krach is due to arrive this Thursday on a charter flight. On Friday, he’s expected to sit down with Vice Premier Shen Jong-chin, Minister Without Portfolio John Deng and the economics minister among others for high-level trade talks. On Saturday, he’s set to attend a memorial for former President Lee Teng-hui.
