Taipei, Nov. 22 (CNA) The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) on Tuesday again declined to comment on reports about a visit to Taiwan by a senior U.S. military intelligence official, who apparently wrapped up a three-day visit to the country on Tuesday night.

Several local and international media outlets have reported that Rear Admiral Michael Studeman, director of Intelligence of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Command, arrived at Taipei Songshan Airport on a special charter flight on Sunday night.

The charter, serial number 375, departed from the same airport around 7:10 p.m. Tuesday, according to photographs taken by local media.

If the reports are true, Studeman would be one of the highest ranking U.S. military officials to visit Taiwan in recent years.    [FULL  STORY]
