American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) Director Kin Moy yesterday said the US would be consistent in handling transit stops by the leaders of Taiwan, who will be received based on considerations of safety, comfort, convenience and dignity.
“We will be very consistent in the way that we handle transits in the future, so I would not see any major departure from what you have seen in the past,” Moy said in response to media questions as to what level of courtesy the US would extend to President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) during her first state visit later this month.
Moy said during a tea gathering with the press in Taipei that the US has handled such transit stops for many years. [FULL STORY]
