Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen warned China in a subtly worded statement on Friday that the island nation would continue to engage with the outside world despite pressure and impediments, according to Taiwan News.

The world had witnessed how the people came even closer together in the face of threats and pressure, and she claimed that despite pressure and barriers, Taiwan continued to engage in international exchanges.

Notably, Tsai just got back from a 10-day tour that featured visits to neighbours Guatemala and Belize as well as a historic meeting with House of Representatives Speaker Kevin McCarthy in the United States.

Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen warned China in a subtly worded statement on Friday that the island nation would continue to engage with the outside world despite pressure and impediments, according to Taiwan News.

The world had witnessed how the people came even closer together in the face of threats and pressure, and she claimed that despite pressure and barriers, Taiwan continued to engage in international exchanges.

Notably, Tsai just got back from a 10-day tour that featured visits to neighbours Guatemala and Belize as well as a historic meeting with House of Representatives Speaker Kevin McCarthy in the United States.

Tsai said that the president of Guatemala, the governor-general of Belize, and representatives from the US Senate and House of Representatives had all personally expressed their support for democracy to her.

She thanked Taiwanese communities abroad as she wrapped up her press conference, according to Taiwan News.

Following their meeting in California on Wednesday, McCarthy earlier underlined the close relationship between Taiwan and the US as well as their commitment to preserving regional stability, according to Taipei Times.

After a two-hour private meeting at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, McCarthy and Tsai declared at a joint press conference that “I believe our bond is stronger now than at any time or point in my lifetime.”

Additionally, a cross-partisan group of US lawmakers attended the meeting. It was the third encounter between a Taiwanese president and a US House speaker since Washington broke off official diplomatic relations with Taipei in 1979, and it was the first between the two on US soil.

Taiwanese citizens are reassured that “we are not isolated, and we are not alone” by the attendance of politicians from all parties and their unshakable support, according to Tsai during the press conference, according to Taipei Times.

Tsai stated that the peace and democracy that Taiwan has worked so hard to establish and uphold are currently facing “unprecedented challenges.”

Eight months had passed since McCarthy’s predecessor, Nancy Pelosi, who was the US House Speaker at the time, visited Taipei in August of last year and met with Tsai in the Presidential Office.

Since Newt Gingrich’s travel in 1997, Pelosi was the first sitting US House speaker to make an overseas trip. As a result, China began a week of extensive military exercises around Taiwan and suspended the imports of numerous food and agricultural items from Taiwan.

Beijing has voiced disapproval of Tsai and McCarthy’s meeting.

Mao Ning, a spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said earlier this week during a news briefing that Beijing would “take resolute measures” to defend its national interests in the event the two met.
