U.S CABINET MEMBER LAUDS TAIWAN’S DEMOCRACY DURING HISTORIC VISIT

Health Secretary Alex Azar arrived in Taipei on Sunday for a three-day visit to promote shared democratic values and the island’s success in taming the coronavirus.

Azar’s visit comes as relations between the United States and China are in tumult, with the two sides clashing over a wide range of trade, military and security issues, and the pandemic.

China, which insists Taiwan is its territory and vows to one day reclaim it, has described Azar’s visit as a threat to “peace and stability.”

On Monday morning, Azar met Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen, who advocates the island being recognized as a sovereign nation and is loathed by China’s leaders.
