Another US delegation lands in Taiwan rising tensions with China

TAIPEI: Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen on Monday received another delegation from the United States amid mounting tensions with China.

Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb arrived in Taipei on Sunday night for a 4-day visit, reports DPA news. On his arrival, he said in a tweet: "I landed in Taipei to start an economic development trip in Taiwan and South Korea. Indiana's home to 10 Taiwanese & 12 South Korean companies. This week marks my Second trip to South Korea as Governor and I am  proud to be the first governor to visit Taiwan since before the pandemic."

His visit follows recent trips by prominent Democrats Ed Markey and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, which sparked anger in Beijing, which opposes official contacts between Taipei and other nations. 

In response to Pelosi's visit on August 2, Beijing began extensive military exercises near Taiwan. In a discussion with Holcomb in the presidential office, Tsai emphasised that the US and Taiwan are important economic and security allies in the Indo-Pacific area.

"China has confronted Taiwan with military threats in and near the Taiwan Strait. Currently, democratic allies must unite and intensify their collaboration in all sectors "Tsai informed the governor of Indiana.

She added that Taiwan was willing to boost collaboration in order to develop sustainable supply chains.
