Taipei, Sept. 19 (CNA) American Under Secretary of State Keith Krach concluded a low-keyed visit to Taiwan Saturday afternoon, departing with his delegation less than 48 hours after they arrived for the memorial service of former President Lee Teng-hui (李登輝).

Shortly after the memorial service ended, Krach and his delegation departed from Songshan Airport in Taipei on a commercial charter flight at around 1 p.m., according to a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).

"Krach fully utilized his time of less of 48 hours in Taiwan," MOFA said. "He met with high-level government officials and people from various sectors and held discussions with them on many issues."

MOFA and other relevant government agencies will continue to work with the U.S. on the issues discussed, to strengthen bilateral economic ties and to deepen the global partnership, which is based on shared values, according to the statement.    [FULL  STORY]
