Despite the pressures and threats from the Chinese government aimed to stop visits from other countries to Taiwan, Senator Marsha Blackburn, a member of the Senate Commerce and Armed Services committees, arrived in Taiwan today. Her trip was intended with the goal of meeting with President Tsai Ing-wen, Wellington Koo, a top security official, and Joseph Wu, the Taiwan Foreign Minister.
"The two sides will exchange views extensively on issues such as Taiwan-U.S. security and economic and trade relations.”
Taiwai’s Foreign Ministry said.
Senator Marsha Blackburn was one of the most vocal supporters of Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan, which is the original visit that sparked China’s ongoing threats and increased military activity around the Taiwan Strait. Blackburn said, "We must stand with Taiwan, and I applaud Pelosi for not backing down to Biden or the CCP.”
