U.S. lawmakers vow ‘rock solid’ commitment to Taiwan | DW News

Five US lawmakers met with Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen on Friday during their visit to Taipei to reaffirm Washington’s support for the island.

The visit is the third one by US lawmakers this year and comes just days after President Joe Biden invited Taiwan to a planned democracy summit.

The invite led to an angry rebuke from Beijing which, in recent years has stepped up military and political pressure on Taiwan to accept its sovereignty claims.
