The United States and Taiwan will hold high-level talks next week in Washington, DC,
American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) chairman Raymond Burghardt said Monday.
He was referring to the Monterey Talks, an institutionalized senior-level strategic security dialogue that was initiated in 1997.
The annual event is usually held in the United States, but this year marks the first time the talks will take place in the US capital, according to a source familiar with the matter.
The source’s remarks came after Burghardt said in a speech at the Brookings Institution earlier in the day that “next week, we have other meetings here in Washington with high-level Taiwanese officials,” while speaking about close exchanges between the two sides. [FULL STORY]
