Congressional delegation visits Taiwan less than 2 weeks after Pelosi’s trip

China has yet to comment on the current visit.


A congressionaldelegation led by Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., landed in Taiwan on Sunday, less than two weeks after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to the Beijing-claimed island drew a furious response from China.

The five-member delegation included Reps. John Garamendi and Alan Lowenthal, D-Calif., and Don Beyer, D-Va., as well as Delegate Amata Coleman Radewagen, R-American Samoa, the American Institute in Taiwan said in a statement Sunday.

They will meet senior Taiwanese leaders to discuss security, trade, supply chains and other issues, the statement said.

After a Taiwanese broadcaster showed video of a U.S. government plane landing about 7 p.m. local time (7 a.m. ET) at Songshan Airport in Taiwan’s capital, Taipei, the group were welcomed by Vice Foreign Affairs Minister Alexander Tah-ray Yui.

Taiwan’s Foreign Affairs Ministry said the delegation would meet President Tsai Ing-wen on Monday morning before it leaves the island later in the day. The members will also attend a banquet with Foreign Minister Joseph Wu and visit the Legislature’s Foreign Affairs and National Defense Committee.

“At a time when China continues to raise regional tensions, the U.S. Congress is once again organizing a heavyweight delegation to Taiwan to show its undaunted friendship and demonstrate strong U.S. support for the island,” the ministry said in a statement.

5 Comments on Congressional delegation visits Taiwan less than 2 weeks after Pelosi’s trip

  1. More money/business connections being established for future campaigns back in the states. FBI too busy working the other end of US elections to look in to “nothing to see here”. .

  2. See what Nasty Nance started? Now grifting Demwits and RINOs are lining up to get their share of Taiwan kickback bucks. Meanwhile, China, the free-est nation in the world, according to Nasty Nance, has more of an excuse to ramp up their saber rattling threats against Taiwan. A recipe for a planned disaster.

  3. Without our supreme bigly leader we can’t think straight. We are all confused. What day is it, hell that doesn’t matter. What year is it, that doesn’t matter. Supremely bigly one, please guide us,for we are the lost ones.
