The content in the 2017 defense bill has sparked discussion in the media about the future of ties between China, the US and the Taiwan region.

China's Global Times newspaper said this bill presents an opportunity to change the nature of military ties between the US and Taiwan from non-official to official, a move which could encourage Taiwan independence.

The China Times newspaper published in Taiwan said that approval of the bill could lead to leader of Taiwan, Tsai Ing-wen, moving in a more dangerous direction and potentially denying the importance on the 1992 Consensus on the one China policy. And the US website, Uschinapress dot com, says the US is less likely to have an open military conflict with China in Taiwan's interests.
