Taipei, Aug. 7 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) met with former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney on Monday and expressed the hope that the strategic partnership between Taiwan and the United States will continue to strengthen.
Tsai noted that Cheney has been a supporter of the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA) since he was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives in 1979, according to a statement released by the Presidential Office after the meeting, which was not open to the media.
Over the past 38 years, the TRA has served as an important foundation for Taiwan’s security and development as well as peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region, and is the best example of the strong Taiwan-U.S. relationship, Tsai said.
