The article warned China with intent to travel to Taiwan
Pelosi wrote an article in the Washington Post after arriving in Taiwan. Pelosi titled the article, ‘Why Am I Leading the US Congressional Delegation to Taiwan?’ Titled as such. He has written that, 43 years ago, the US Congress passed the Taiwan Relations Act. The then US President Jimmy Carter signed it.
The Taiwan Relations Act is an important pillar of US foreign policy in the Asia Pacific. This act reaffirms America’s commitment to Taiwan’s democracy. Through this act, we advance economic and diplomatic relations with Taiwan.
America is committed to Taiwan’s security
Pelosi wrote that America is committed to the security of Taiwan. If Taiwan’s future is changed unilaterally and forcibly, it will be a threat to the Western Pacific. It will be worrisome for America.
America should once again recall this contact of its own. China has dramatically escalated tensions with Taiwan in recent years. The People’s Republic of China has continuously sent its fighter jets, patrol bombers and surveillance aircraft to Taiwan’s airspace. According to the US Department of Defense, China is trying to contain Taiwan. China has also targeted Taiwan’s cyberspace. China attacks Taiwanese government agencies every day.
