United States House of Representatives members assure closer bilateral ties with Taiwan amid Chinese pressure

A team of  United States House of Representatives members, who were recently visiting Taiwan, assured to promote closer bilateral ties across different domains amid increasing pressure from China.

"We have come to understand more and more the importance of a strong relationship between the U.S. and Taiwan," Lisa McClain, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, told President Tsai Ing-wen during a meeting in Taipei as quoted by Focus Taiwan.

On a daily basis, Taiwan faces "threats from the Chinese Communist Party, whether it's military actions over your skies, aggressive maneuvers in your waters, or economic pressures," she said.

McClain commended the people of Taiwan for "constantly fighting for freedoms," noting that the "bond" between Taiwan and the U.S. built on similar values is "strong and enduring."

"Let no one doubt today our support for you, Taiwan, for your people, and our bright future together," Mark Alford, who also sits on the House Armed Services Committee, was quoted as saying by Focus News.

"We stand together," he went on, "we must be ready to stand united against the forces of aggression and together promote the ideals of freedom and democracy in the Indo-Pacific region."

Following the meeting with US leaders, Taiwan's president Tsai Ing-wen posted on X: "A warm welcome to the bipartisan delegation incl. Congressional Taiwan Caucus members @RepLisaMcClain , Rep @dankildee, & Rep@markalfordkc . Thank you for consistently backing #Taiwan & our ever-deepening partnership with the #US."
