Foreign Minister Joseph Wu has been invited to speak in the US on Taiwan’s possible role in the US
Indo-Pacific strategy. That was the word from the foreign ministry on Wednesday.
Wu will be speaking at the Los Angeles World Affairs Council on Monday on the topic “Taiwan: An Enduring Partner with the US in the Free and Open Indo-Pacific”.
Wu will discuss Taiwan’s calls for like-minded countries to work together in safeguarding democracy and freedom.
He will speak about Taiwan’s New Southbound Policy, which aims at strengthening Taiwan’s economic and cultural ties with South Asia, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. He will also cover the Taiwan Relations Act, enacted 40 years ago this year. The act forms the basis of Taiwan’s relationship with the US in the absence of formal diplomatic ties. [FULL STORY]
