The Taiwan Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States issued a statement saying, “We thank the State Department for inviting Taiwan to the Democracy Summit, demonstrating the solid friendship between Taiwan and the United States and the importance of Taiwan as a partner in democracy.”

In February, in his first foreign policy address, President Biden announced plans to hold a democracy summit focused on preventing authoritarianism, addressing and combating corruption, and promoting respect for human rights. Biden said he would return the United States to a position of international leadership against the authoritarian forces dominated by Communist China and Russia.
