Legislators headed by Senator Ed Markey will visit the island as part of a trip to the Indo-Pacific region
A US congressional delegation will visit Taiwan from August 14 to 15, the American Institute in Taiwan (the de facto US embassy, which has the status of a non-commercial organization) said in a statement on Sunday.
Legislators headed by Senator Ed Markey will visit the island as part of a trip to the Indo-Pacific region, the statement said.
“The delegation will meet with senior Taiwan leaders to discuss US-Taiwan relations, regional security, trade and investment, global supply chains, climate change, and other significant issues of mutual interest,” the de facto US embassy said.
On August 2 and 3, during a tour of the Asia-Pacific Region, US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taiwan. This visit was the first by an American politician of such a high rank over 25 years. Following the trip Beijing imposed sanctions against Pelosi and her family and suspended the work of several Chinese-US intergovernmental mechanisms.
