A delegation of US legislators arrives in Taiwan

Taipei, Taiwan –

A delegation of US lawmakers is visiting Taiwan just 12 days after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit angered China. China responded to Pelosi’s visit by sending missiles, warships and warplanes into the waters and air around Taiwan.

The five-member delegation is led by Democratic Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts and is in Taiwan on Sunday and Monday as part of a visit to Asia, the American Institute in Taiwan said. They will meet senior leaders to discuss US-Taiwan relations, regional security, trade, investment and other issues.

A Taiwanese television station showed a video of a US government plane landing at around 7 p.m. at Songshan Airport in Taipei, Taiwan’s capital.

China claims self-governing Taiwan as its territory and opposes it having any official contact with foreign governments.
