MOFA thanks US deputy secretary of state for cross-strait peace support

The remarks by U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Kurt M. Campbell March 25 in Washington on the importance of maintaining peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait are sincerely welcomed by the government and people of Taiwan, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
According to a statement released by the U.S. State Department, Campbell made the remarks during his meeting with Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis. They affirmed the importance of maintaining the cross-strait status quo while Campbell also highlighted support for Lithuania amid continued coercive measures by the People’s Republic of China.
In March the U.S. has expressed support for cross-strait peace on three occasions, that is, together with Lithuania, the Czech Republic and with Germany, the MOFA said, adding that China’s frequent use of political suppression, economic coercion and gray zone tactics is attracting increasing concern from the international community.
As a democracy, Taiwan will continue to work with like-minded partners to counter threats from authoritarian regimes, the MOFA said. The government is committed to defending the rules-based international order and safeguarding cross-strait and Indo-Pacific peace and stability, the ministry added. (YCH-E)
