TAIPEI, Taiwan — United States-Taiwan relations will continue to thrive whether the U.S. has a
Republican or Democrat president, the de facto U.S. ambassador to Taiwan said Wednesday in Taipei before the election was called.
“Over the last few decades, the Taiwan-U.S. relation has been extremely resilient, regardless (of) whether it is a Republican administration or a Democratic administration,” American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) director Kin Moy told reporters in Taipei.
Moy said he had personally seen”consistency” in U.S.’ Taiwan policy as he served in administrations of both parties throughout his career. He stressed that there was “so much support” in the U.S. for Taiwan and for U.S.-Taiwan relations.
“I have a great deal of confidence that we (U.S. and Taiwan) will continue in a very positive direction or a positive trajectory (no matter who wins),” he noted. [FULL STORY]
