This month, the US Senate and House of Representatives passed the Asia Reassurance Initiative Act of 2018, reiterating the US commitment to Taiwan's security and supporting closer Taiwan-US relations. On December 19, Presidential Office Spokesperson Sidney Lin (???) sincerely thanked the US Congress, the administration, and civil society for their longstanding support for Taiwan.
Spokesperson Lin stated that the United States is Taiwan's most important international ally, and that continued strong Taiwan-US relations and a stable East Asia are vital for all parties in the region, including Taiwan and the United States. As a responsible member of international society, Taiwan will continue to work closely with the United States and other like-minded countries in the region to contribute to the peace, stability, and well-being of the Indo-Pacific region.
