TAIPEI, Taiwan — Tsai Ing-wen praised the Obama administration’s handling of Taiwan-U.S relations,
while vowing to maintain regional peace under Donald Trump’s presidency, at a closed-door meeting with foreign dignitaries on Thursday.
The President expressed “gratitude” toward the Obama administration, citing its “long-standing support and cooperation,”
Tsai added that such support and cooperation had fostered close and stable relations.
Tsai said she hoped close cooperation between Taiwan and Washington would continue under Donald Trump’s presidency.
Attendees at the event included Wendy Sherman, former U.S. under secretary of state for political affairs.
As they greeted each other, Sherman told Tsai that she “hoped to shake hands with the first female president of my own country,” eliciting laughter from other attendees, in a video of the event provided by the Presidential Office. [FULL STORY]
