TAIPEI: President Tsai Ing-wen received a US congressional delegation led by Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson on November 21 at the Office of the President in Taipei City, expressing Taiwan’s commitment to consolidating and deepening the strong ties between the two sides. Tsai thanked Johnson, a member of the Congressional Taiwan Caucus, for her staunch support of the nation’s international participation. The Texas congresswoman co-sponsored a bill, House Resolution 1853, directing US President Barack Obama to develop a strategy to assist Taiwan in obtaining observer status in Interpol that was approved unanimously in November 2015 by the US House of Representatives. The president reaffirmed the nation’s determination to making significant contributions to major global issues. Tsai added that she expects the newly elected US government will continue to uphold its security commitment to Taiwan as well as maintain close economic and cultural interactions in accordance with the Taiwan Relations Act and Six Assurances.
