Taiwan’s representative to Canada Winston Chen on Monday said he hopes that Canada would follow in the footsteps of the US and send Cabinet-level officials to Taiwan. Chen was cited in an opinion piece in the Canadian newspaper The Hill Times.
US Health Secretary Alex Azar’s recent visit to Taiwan was the highest level trip by a US official since 1979. Chen said the visit was historic for Taiwan-US relations. Azar’s visit indicated that diplomatic activities can be carried out despite the absence of formal diplomatic relations.
