The spokesperson of the de facto American embassy traveled to the outlying island county last week, making stops at a host of tourist attractions and the Kinmen Defense Command. She also delivered a speech at National Quemoy University, reported CNA.
She spoke about AIT's role in promoting bilateral exchanges in culture, economics, education, and security cooperation. During the Q&A session, Mansour assured attendees that the U.S.-Taiwan bond, forged over many years, will not change from one administration to the next.
In a series of Facebook posts, Mansour shared her adventures in the Taiwanese islands, which served as a fortress in the Second Taiwan Strait Crisis in 1958 and withstood shelling from China. “Kinmen is the backdrop of many years of fascinating U.S.-Taiwan cooperation,” she said.
