The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) on Tuesday said that support from U.S. 6749112friends will not change and the U.S. will send a senior representative to attend President-elect Tsai Ing-wen’s inauguration ceremony on May 20.

MOFA’s statement came after Hank Zuber, representative in the Mississippi House, posted on his Facebook page on Feb. 19, saying that he had received a warning letter from the Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in Houston.

The letter says the Chinese government doesn’t expect Zuber or other representatives to attend any inaugural ceremonies or correspondence with President-elect Tsai and that adoption of resolutions in the legislative assembly and official exchanges between the U.S. and Taiwan are also not welcomed.

According to Zuber’s post, he “coauthors supporting resolutions and meets the visiting Taiwanese delegation annually.”

The MOFA said that it has noticed the unfriendly gesture made by China’s representative in Houston.     [FULL  STORY]
