Another U.S. Delegation Visits Taiwan

Eight bipartisan lawmakers meet with Taiwanese officials.

Another U.S. congressional delegation traveled to Taiwan last week to meet with Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen. The delegation was led by Representative Stephanie Murphy of Florida and included Representatives Kaiali’i Kahele of Hawaii, Scott Franklin of Florida, Joe Wilson of South Carolina, Andy Barr of Kentucky, Darrell Issa of California, Claudia Tenney of New York, and Kat Cammack of Florida.

Members of Congress have continued to show support for Taiwan after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited the country last month. Her visit prompted increased aggression from China, which considers the island nation to be part of Chinese territory. President Biden’s administration has continued to support Taiwanese independence, sending even more delegations and announcing the close of a $1 billion dollar arms sale to the country on September 2 to help Taiwan “maintain a sufficient self-defense capability.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For U.S. representatives as they continue to support Taiwan.
  • For President Biden and his foreign policy advisors as they evaluate the threat China poses to Taiwan.
  • That Secretary Blinken and U.S. diplomats would be discerning in their interactions with international officials.
