To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Taiwan Relations Act, Taiwan has come out with a VR film of the Twin Oaks Estate in Washington DC that belongs to the Taiwan government.
The estate was the residence of many former ambassadors and is currently used for official functions. In the Taiwan Relations Act, the US expresses its responsibility to help Taiwan defend itself.
Foreign Minister Joseph Wu spoke about the US commitment to Taiwan on Tuesday. “After 40 years of hard work, this is a good symbol of relations. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that Taiwan is a reliable partner and a success story for democracy,” he said. “He said Taiwan is a force for good. Besides Pompeo, many US officials have been saying this. I have dealt with international relations for many years and haven’t seen the US speak so highly of another country.” [FULL STORY]
