By Benjamin Flowers: Vice President of the Republic of China (Taiwan) Lai Ching-te (賴清德) visited the region this week to attend the inauguration of the new President of Honduras, but took some time during a stopover to hold virtual meetings with members of the United States Congress.
Focus Taiwan reports that Vice President Lai led the delegation on behalf of President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) to Honduras to take part in the inauguration ceremony of President-elect Xiomara Castro from Jan. 27-28.
Lai reportedly said that attending the inauguration, despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, is a show of Taiwan’s commitment to boosting bilateral ties with Honduras. The delegation also reportedly donated medical relief supplies to Honduras to support the country’s COVID-19 response.
“We will use concrete action and specific measures to show our support for deeper ties and the new government,” Lai said.
The South China Morning Post reports that, while stopping over in Los Angeles, Lai virtually met with 17 members of the US Congress, though the detils of those meetings have not been disclosed.
Deputy secretary general of the presidential officeLee Chun-yi , who accompanied Lai, was quoted as saying that the meetings focused on US-Taiwan relations as well as growing threats to Taiwan’s sovereignty posed by the People’s Republic of China. Lai is expected to return to Taiwan on Saturday, making another stopover in the US, this time in San Francisco.
