The United Nations has agreed that it is an issue that will need to be addressed immediately, however their determination has not been made public as of yet. President Obama has also reached out to Shu Chin-Chiang and has warned him to not escalate the situation as tensions are already high. Past situations of the United States involvement with Taiwan, “...US was normalizing relations with the PRC and would sever formal relations with Taiwan. In response to President Carter's action, Congress passed the Taiwan Relations Act calling for the US to consider any effort to determine the future
Angeles 6of Taiwan by other than peaceful means (including boycotts and embargoes) as a threat to the peace and security of the Pacific and of grave concern to the US and made formal provisions for providing Taiwan with weapons "of a defensive nature." Since United States representatives has warned both Shu Chin-Chiang and Ma Ying Jeon that under the current circumstances, the US could not guarantee political, or any military support, should a confrontation with the PRC occur because of the Taiwan Relations Act . The United States lack of support has been viewed negatively, and it is being looked as further pushing the countries into war. “The People's Daily,a newspaper of the CCP ran a series of articles criticizing the elections and the US’ silence on theissue, suggesting the elections may be part of a larger US plan to "bring war on the Chinese people."”. The United States is not in agreement with Shu Chin-Chiang’s political tactics, however in the past when the PRC launched missiles inside Taiwanese waters the United States did deploy to carriers to help ease tensions, they have agreed with the PRC that they are the overarching power in the area and will not give weapons to Taiwan to defend themselves. If the United States breaches this act more severe consequences can occur. With the three scenarios, direct attack, political solution, and limited intervention, it seems as though a direct attack is the most likely course of action. If this attack were to occur the United States has agreed to remain out of it as there is not much else that can be done. The People’s Republic of China and the Republic of China have made steps to rectify the situation amongst themselves. It is clear that neither party wants to go through with an attack if they do not have to. The least likely scenario is that the situation will be settled with limited interventionfrom other countries. While the United States has made it clear on what will be done if an attack occurs the United Nations still have not came up their determination.
