ABOARD AIR FORCE ONE (Reuters) -The United States is looking to deepen its economic partnership with Taiwan even if though it is excluded from President Joe Biden's new Asian economic initiative, a top official said.

"Taiwan won’t be part of the launch," of Biden's Indo-Pacific Economic Framework for Prosperity (IPEF), U.S. National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said on Sunday, en route to Japan with President Joe Biden.

"But we are looking to deepen our economic partnership with Taiwan, including on high-technology issues, including on semiconductors and supply chains."

Self-governing Taiwan, which is claimed by China, had expressed an interest in joining the talks.

During his first trip to Japan since taking office, Biden will participate in a summit of the "Quad" grouping of countries, meeting with leaders of Japan, India and Australia. Issues of regional security, including China's steps toward Taiwan, are expected to figure into the discussions.

"We do not want to see unilateral changes to the status quo and we certainly don't want to see military aggression. And we do want that message coming not just from us, but from a range of allies and partners, both in the region and beyond," Sullivan told reporters aboard Air Force One.

In regards to "...we certainly don't want to see military aggression", it's unfortunate the Western World has not recognized Tiawan, a non-communist country, as independent. Would this "Quad Summit" and western countries support Tiawan should China invade? Well, Ukraine was #3 in the world as a nuclear power country after the fall of the Soviet Union. On Dec 5, 1994 the Budapest Memorandum was signed stating that if Ukrain gives up it's nuclear weapons, it would be protected by Russia, the United States, and Great Britain. How is that working out?
