The US Department of State on Tuesday announced that a department official would join a political and military dialogue with Taiwan today.

Taipei did not provide details about the dialogue except to say that both sides maintain close cooperation.

US Assistant Secretary of State for Political-Military Affairs Clarke Cooper is to deliver opening remarks at the virtual dialogue at 7:30am Taipei time, a schedule on the department’s Web site showed.

Cooper, who assumed his post in May 2019, in August posted on Twitter a photograph showing a meeting with then-representative to the US Stanley Kao (高碩泰).
