U.S. HEALTH SECRETARY ALEX AZAR MEETS TAIWAN’S TSAI ING-WEN, PLEDGES SUPPORT FOR ISLAND DEMOCRACY

US Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, the most senior official to visit Taiwan in 40 years, met the island’s President Tsai Ing-wen on Monday.

The delegation praised President Tsai Ing-wen government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and offered U.S. President Donald Trump’s strong support.

China, which claims the democratically ruled island as its own, has condemned Azar’s trip as a threat to “peace and stability” and promised unspecified retaliation.

Washington broke off official ties with Taipei in 1979 in favor of Beijing.

The Trump administration has made strengthening its support for the island a priority and has also boosted arms sales.
