Statement on Recent Elections in Taiwan
Washington, D.C. - House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee Chairman for Asia and the Pacific, Ted S. Yoho (R- FL), released the following statement:
“I’m concerned by the widespread allegations that Beijing attempted to interfere in Taiwan’s local elections this weekend. The Chinese Communist Party’s reprehensible campaign to marginalize Taiwan is no secret. Taiwan’s vibrant democracy and upstanding international conduct are qualities the Communist Party should aspire to, rather than undermine.
“The U.S.-Taiwan partnership remains unwavering. I continue to encourage the Administration to demonstrate this commitment by fully implementing the Taiwan Travel Act, beginning with a cabinet-level visit to Taiwan as soon as possible.”
