Jan 12, 2017 Market Comments Off on Trump unchanged on Taiwan policy: Foreign ministry
Foreign ministry spokesperson Eleanor Wang says US President-elect Donald Trump's Taiwan policy has not changed. Wang was speaking on Thursday after a statement by Trump's secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, at his Senate confirmation hearing.
Tillerson confirmed the United States' promises to Taiwan in the Taiwan Relations Act and the Six Assurances. These form the cornerstones of Taiwan-US relations in the absence of formal diplomatic ties.
Wang said Tillerson's statement indicates that the incoming Trump administration is aware of the importance of Taiwan-US relations for maintaining peace and stability in the Asia Pacific and the world.
"[Tillerson mentioned] the important role that Taiwan-US relations play in US foreign policy. He also said in his statement that his office will continue to uphold US promises concerning Taiwan's security. We welcome and appreciate such a statement."
That was foreign ministry spokesperson Eleanor Wang speaking on Thursday.
