Bipartisan Senior U.S. congressional delegation arrives in Taiwan

On the evening of April 14, local time, a bipartisan group of six, including U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Menendez and the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee Lindsey Graham, landed at Taipei Songshan Airport on a military plane on its two-day visit to Taiwan.On arrival, the U.S. congressional delegation was greeted by Foreign Minister Joseph Wu and will be expected to meet President Tsai Ing-wen and Minister of National Defense Chiu Kuo-cheng on the 15th, to discuss bilateral relations, regional security, and other significant issues of mutual interest in Taiwan-U.S. relations.

It is reported that the visiting delegation of senior U.S. dignitaries has just finished a trip to Australia and landed in Taipei overnight. In addition to expressing support for Taiwan, the delegation will also learn about the security threats posed by the Chinese Communist Party(CCP) to the Indo-Pacific region and how the United States can strengthen its presence in the region.It is unclear whether the mission is paving the way for a visit to Taiwan by U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, which could happen any day. In response to the recent spate of visits by Western political figures to Taiwan despite threats from the CCP, Zhao Lijian, spokesperson for Communist China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that the CCP would respond with “strong measures.”
