Australia Engaging in 'Strategic Planning' With US in Case of Chinese Offensive Against TaiwanThe US and Australia are engaging in "strategic planning" on a number of issues ranging from cooperation between the two states' militaries to jointly responding to a possible offensive by China against Taiwan, the American Embassy's chargé d’affaires, Michael Goldman, has announced speaking on the Australian National University podcast.

"We're committed as allies to working together – not only in making our militaries interoperable and functioning well together, but also in strategic planning", the top US diplomat in Australia said.

Goldman stressed that discussions on how to jointly respond to an alleged military operation by Beijing is their top priority.

At the same time, neither the US, nor Australia have so far committed to intervening militarily if such a conflict erupts between China and the island, which Beijing considers a part of its territory.
