President Tsai Ing-wen said Tuesday that Taiwan is committed to upholding peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region. The president was speaking while meeting a visiting delegation from the Project 2049 Institute, an American think tank focusing on strategic issues in Asia.

Among those in the delegation was Richard Armitage, a former US deputy secretary of state. Tsai said Armitage called for closer US ties with Taiwan after El Salvador broke ties with Taiwan last month. She thanked him for his support.

The president said China continues to exert pressure on Taiwan in a way that affects the stability of the larger region. She said Taiwan will continue to seek regional peace and stability and pursue closer dialogue with other partners in the region. The president also said her government is actively pursuing greater autonomy in Taiwan’s national defense.
