The US will continue to engage with all major Taiwanese political parties and treat their
candidates equally, American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) Director Kin Moy said yesterday.
Moy made the remarks at a news conference in Taipei in response to questions about Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) presidential candidate Eric Chu’s (朱立倫) plan to visit the US next month.
“I told Chu at our meeting last week that we welcome him to the US at a time that is appropriate. We engage with all the political parties here and I think we have a really strong relationship,” said Moy, who took over as director in June.
“We will treat all the political parties and all their candidates on an equal footing with equal respect,” he said. [FULL STORY]
