Price pointed out that the "one China policy" of the United States has not changed, and the United States has not taken a stand on Taiwan's sovereignty.

He emphasized that this is the position of the United States that has been publicly and clearly expressed many times, and it was also conveyed privately by Antony Blinken during his meeting with Wang Yi on September 23.

Price mentioned that the United States wants to see the status quo, which has consolidated peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait for more than 40 years, continue.

However, he criticized that China's actions in the Taiwan Strait are increasingly provocative and coercive.

In fact, it has been a long-standing policy of the United States not to take a stand on Taiwan sovereignty, but government officials have rarely publicly stated it; since US President Joe Biden took office, the few records of similar official discourses that can be found are on October 12 last year, when he was in office. Defense Department spokesman John Kirby explained to the media the difference between the "one China policy" of the United States and the "one China principle" of China.

Kirby said at the time that the United States has long followed the "one China policy", which is different from China's "one China principle". Under the "one China principle", Beijing claims sovereignty over Taiwan, but the United States does not take a stand on Taiwan's sovereignty.

China has been trying to confuse the "one-China principle" with the "one-China policy" for many years, but the latter only acknowledges Beijing's claim that Taiwan is part of China, but does not recognize it.

In May, Price criticized China on Twitter for continuing to openly distort U.S. policy, emphasizing that the U.S. does not agree with the "one China principle" and abides by the "one China policy."
