By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Thursday night, U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn arrived in Taiwan for a 3 day visit, Focus Taiwan reports.
On her Twitter account, Senator Blackburn said, “I just landed in Taiwan to send a message to Beijing — we will not be bullied.
The United States remains steadfast in preserving freedom around the globe, and will not tolerate efforts to undermine our nation and our allies.”
There are heightened tensions between Taiwan and China since China views Taiwan as its territory and has long vowed to “reunify” the self-governing democratic island.
Senator Blackburn is scheduled to meet with top officials in Taiwan including President Tsai Ing Wen.
Her visit is the 3rd in a series of high-profile visits by members of the U.S. Congress.
Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs say that the visit “demonstrated the strong support for and commitment to Taiwan.”
Earlier this month, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Senator Ed Markey led delegations to Taiwan.
