The US State Department said Keith Krach, undersecretary of state for economic growth, energy, and the environment will visit Taiwan to attend an upcoming memorial service for late president Lee Teng-hui, defying China by making the second high-ranking US trip in as many months to the island.

Krach is en route to Taipei for the memorial service on Saturday.

The latest trip is likely to rile China, which balks at any recognition of Taiwan and tries to keep the democratic self-ruled island isolated.

Relations between the United States and China are at their worst in decades, with the two sides clashing over a wide range of trade, military, and security issues, as well as the coronavirus pandemic.
