Taking into account recent regional developments, nine Republican members of the House of Representatives jointly sent a letter to Biden on the 12th, calling on him to consider adding a trip to Taiwan to his visit.

According to a copy of the letter obtained by Central News Agency reporter Pete Stauber, Michelle Steele, Bob Good and Ronnie Jackson, co-senators include Tom Tiffany, Scott Perry, Nancy Mays, Louis Gohart, Lisa McClain, Stout, and Tom Tiffany.

The lawmakers said in the letter that when then-US President Jimmy Carter began the process of establishing diplomatic relations with China in 1978, Biden was a senator in Congress. He was very clear that the basis for the US decision was thatBeijingResolved to settle differences peacefully with Taiwan.

Lawmakers criticized the CCP for continuing to violate this guarantee, including the recent dispatch of military aircraft to harass Taiwan’s Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ); He quoted Biden as saying that Beijing was doing “coercion” and “threats to regional peace and stability.”

In addition, lawmakers pointed out that during Biden’s tenure as a senator, the US Congress also passed the “Taiwan Relations Act”, calling on the US side to provide sufficient weapons for Taiwan’s self-defense. But recent reports of delays in arms sales could send a red flag to Taiwan and other US allies in the region, especially as Beijing deliberately escalates tensions in the Taiwan Strait.

Lawmakers said the Taiwan Relations Act also called for stronger economic cooperation between the United States and Taiwan, but US Trade Representative Catherine Tai last month called for the US’s Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) to include Taiwan and Biden. refused to commit. The administration came late as the process of negotiating and signing a free trade agreement (FTA) between the United States and Taiwan has not officially begun.

“We are concerned that this may reward and encourage China to continue to bully and isolate Taiwan,” the lawmakers said.
