Unofficial US delegation meets with Taiwan leader

The members of the delegation assured Taipei of Washington’s support.

An unofficial US delegation met with Taiwan’s President Cai Yingwen amid rising tensions between the self-governing island and China.

Former Senator Christopher Dodd and former Deputy Secretaries of State James Steinberg and Richard Armitage arrived in Taipei to show support for Taiwan on behalf of President Joe Biden.

During the ceremony before the talks, Dodd assured Сai Yingwen that Washington’s partnership with Taipei “has never been stronger” and promised that the Biden administration would prove itself as a “reliable and loyal friend” by helping Taiwan expand its presence on the international stage and supporting its investment in self-defense.

Cai Yingwen said Taiwan is ready to work with “like-minded countries,” including the United States, “to jointly protect peace and stability in the Indo-Pacific region and prevent adventurous maneuvers and provocations.”
