American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) Director Kin Moy yesterday
visited Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan (蘇嘉全) at the Legislative Yuan in Taipei to congratulate him on his recent election, as both parties expressed their desire for stronger US-Taiwan ties.
Su, who on Monday was elected the nation’s first non-Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislative speaker, said Moy contacted him through the Legislative Yuan’s public relations office and expressed his wish to pay him a visit and offer his congratulations.
“We have talked a lot, including how legislative meetings proceeded in the past, and he praised Taiwan’s democracy, saying that, despite the disputes, lawmakers could always reach conclusions in the end,” Su said after a 40-minute meeting behind closed doors. “He also said that Taiwan and the US have a very close relationship, adding that the US hopes that Taiwan stabilizes its economic development, and that Taiwan and the US can be good partners in the future.” [FULL STORY]
