Pelosi: Taiwan Visit Clearly Shows U.S. Stands With Taiwan

U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said yesterday that her delegation’s visit to Taiwan was to make it incontrovertibly clear that the United States stands with Taiwan and is proud of their enduring friendship, Taipei Times reported on August 4.

Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen met with the US delegation at the Presidential Palace in Taipei. Nancy Pelosi was honored with the Order of Propitious Clouds with Special Grand Cordon, the highest civilian award of Taiwan, in recognition of her long-term support and contributions to Taiwan-US relations. The two sides also discussed “a trade agreement that may be reached soon”.

Pelosi said U.S. solidarity with Taiwan is now more important than ever. The United States and Taiwan enjoy strong cooperation in security, economics, and governance, the three main pillars of any U.S. congressional delegation. Taiwan is a thriving democracy and one of the freest countries in the world. She emphasized that the U.S. House and Senate, Democrats and Republicans are committed to Taiwan’s security so that Taiwan can best protect itself more effectively.

Tsai Ing-wen said, regarding deliberately heightened military threats, Taiwan would safeguard its national sovereignty and stand firm in the line of defense for democracy and vowed to strengthen Taiwan’s self-defense capabilities “at all costs” to make Taiwan a key stabilizing force in regional security. She pledged to work with the U.S. Congress and the U.S. government on security, economic development, talent cultivation, and supply chains.

After the meeting, Tsai and Pelosi held a joint press conference for representatives of local and international media, as well as Japanese delegates.
