The US believes that “it is important that no country be intimidated or isolated,” former US under
secretary of state for political affairs Wendy Sherman told a conference in Taipei yesterday.
Sherman had been invited by the Taipei-based Prospect Foundation to attend an annual seminar on security dialogue involving Taiwan, the US, Japan and their Asia-Pacific partners hosted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the foundation, the Washington-based Center for a New American Security and the Tokyo-based Institute for International Policy Studies.
Sherman told reporters before the conference started that she was delighted to be making her first visit to Taiwan.
“I’ve long been a strong supporter of the Taiwan-US relationship, but I have never had the privilege of visiting Taipei. I’m very much looking forward to the US-Taiwan-Japan dialogue, which I think is very important for all of their countries,” she said. [FULL STORY][
