Former Premier Yu Hsi-kun has left for the United States to attend President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration on behalf of President Tsai Ing-wen.
Speaking at the airport on Monday, Yu talked about ties between the two sides.
The United States really is our best partner. Many retired US officials have said that Taiwan-US ties are at its best in history," said Yu. "Because of this, in addition to our congratulations, the Taiwan delegation will also express the government and people's gratitude to the United States.
Yu said the delegation would also like to thank Washington for the treatment accorded to President Tsai during her transit stops in the United States last week.
