Washington, April 14 – Michael Gallagher, chairman of the House Committee on Strategic Competition with China, said on Friday that US President Joe Biden is not doing enough to prevent World War III, which could start over Beijing’s territorial claims to Taiwan.
According to the congressman quoted by Fox News, the Biden administration is “not acting with the proper sense of urgency to prevent World War III.”
Gallagher commented: “In my opinion, especially starting with the Taiwan elections in January 2024, we will be in the window of maximum danger. And (Chinese President) Xi Jinping has many problems that he needs to solve in 2030.”

The Republican expressed concern that the administration of the current US president does not consider Beijing’s regional ambitions an “imminent threat”, and considers a military invasion of the Chinese army on the island in the coming years “unlikely”.
The situation around Taiwan escalated dramatically after a visit to the island in early August 2022 by then-Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi. China, which considers the island one of its provinces, condemned Pelosi’s visit, seeing in this move the United States’ support for Taiwanese separatism, and conducted large-scale military exercises.
Official relations between the central government of the People’s Republic of China and its island province ceased in 1949 after Chiang Kai-shek’s KMT forces were defeated in a civil war with the Chinese Communist Party, and moved to Taiwan. Commercial and informal contacts between the island and mainland China resumed in the late 1980s. Since the early 1990s, the parties have started contacting through NGOs – the Beijing Association for the Development of Relationships Across the Taiwan Straits and the Taipei Cross-Strait Exchange Foundation.
