Excerpt
Summary: For much of the George W. Bush Administration, U.S.-China relations have been unusually smooth and stable. Still, several perennial problems continue to dog the relationship. Taiwan remains the most sensitive and complex issue the two countries face and the one that many observers fear could lead to potential conflict. China considers Taiwan’s budding independence movement the single biggest threat to China’s sovereignty and regional peace, and Beijing maintains that it has the right to use force to “reunify” with its “renegade province” Taiwan. In March 2005, China’s National People’s Congress will consider an “anti-secession law” aimed at Taiwan. Meanwhile, the United States continues to sell defensive weapons to Taiwan and to offer assistance to its military. U.S. officials have warned both sides not to take provocative action and have warned the PRC that considering an antisecession law is not constructive to stability.
