MOFA welcomes US bipartisan congressional delegation

The visit by three members of the U.S. House of Representatives is sincerely welcomed by the government and people of Taiwan as the 45th anniversary of the Taiwan Relations Act is celebrated, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said April 23.
According to the MOFA, the group comprises Lisa McClain, secretary of the House Republican Conference who serves on the Committee on Armed Services; Dan Kildee of the Democratic Party who serves on the Ways and Means Committee; and Mark Alford of the Republican Party who also serves on the Armed Services Committee.
During their stay April 23-25, the three will meet with President Tsai Ing-wen as well as Vice President and President-elect Lai Ching-te, attend a banquet hosted by Foreign Minister Jaushieh Joseph Wu and discuss views on U.S.-Taiwan relations and cross-strait and regional security issues.
The MOFA said on April 20, the House of Representatives passed the Emergency National Security Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2024, under which the Indo-Pacific Security Supplemental Appropriations Act will provide key financial resources for military assistance to Taiwan and the maintenance of regional security.
The group’s visit emphasizes the unwavering bipartisan support for Taiwan and gains a deeper understanding of Taiwan for the House members. This in turn aids the promotion of relations to defend the rules-based international order and ensure regional peace, stability and prosperity, the ministry said. (SFC-E)
