he hoped that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will bring up issues relating to Taiwan during his upcoming trip to China, at the sidelines of a conference in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 3.

When asked about what issues Pompeo should raise with Chinese officials, Armitage said that Taiwan was one of them, and suggested the two sides speak about how to ensure peace and stability for the people of Taiwan, reported United Daily News.

Armitage took questions from Taiwanese journalists after the launch of a joint report by him and Harvard academic Joseph S. Nye titled “The U.S.-Japan Alliance: More Important Than Ever” at a Center for Strategic and International Studies think tank.
