opportunities for greater cooperation between Taiwan and the United States under new leaders but warned that better communications were needed to strengthen ties.

Speaking at a forum organized by the World Taiwanese Congress and Taiwan Nation Alliance on Sunday, Yates said he believes there will be both opportunities and challenges for Taiwan-U.S. relations with the two countries now governed by new leaders.

In terms of opportunities, Yates said closer cooperation could lead to openings on trade, national defense, and a widening of Taiwan’s international space.
