“By visiting and meeting with officials in Taiwan, South Korea, and Mongolia, our bipartisan congressional delegation sent a powerful message to the world that America stands with her partners in Asia. I am grateful to our hosts for receiving our delegation and their commitment to strengthening our bilateral defense and economic relationships,” said Murphy. “I was especially moved by our meeting with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen. Taiwan is a beacon of hope for democracy’s future in Asia, as well as a vital trading partner for the United States and our allies around the world. This relationship is paramount to our national and economic security, and I was grateful to have the opportunity to discuss these critically important issues with the President.”

In Taiwan, the delegation met with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the President of the Legislative Yuan, and senior officials from the American Institute in Taiwan.
