The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) says it will pay close attention to future American policy. That’s after Rex Tillerson was confirmed as the new US secretary of state on Wednesday.

Foreign ministry spokesperson Eleanor Wang said Thursday that Taiwan and the US maintain good relations. She said the two sides hold close communication on every level.

“We have built very solid communication channels in different areas. We have also often exchanged views on topics of concern. With Tillerson taking office, we will maintain even closer contact regarding the direction of US policies. If we have any opinions, we will be sure to express them to our US counterparts,” said Wang.

Wang also said the foreign ministry is working on the possibility of inviting former US president Barack Obama to visit Taiwan. She said such a visit would prove the close ties between Taiwan and the US.    [SOURCE]
