Five bipartisan members of the U.S. House of Representatives visited Taiwan again and met with President Tsai Ing-wen to reaffirm the “rock-solid” support of the United States for Taiwan, according to a Nov. 26 report by the Voice of America.

Members of the U.S. House of Representatives from both parties arrived in Taiwan on Thursday evening and met with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen on Friday morning, according to a news release from the American Institute in Taiwan.

The delegation to Taiwan included Democratic Congressmen Elissa Slotkin, Mark Takano, Colin Allred and Sara Jacobs, and Republican Congresswoman Nancy Mace.

Rep. Slotkin, from Michigan, disclosed on Twitter Friday that as soon as news of the visit broke, her office received a blunt message from the CCP Embassy asking her to cancel the trip. But in the end, Slotkin ignored the Chinese Communist Party’s objections and went ahead to meet Tsai Ing-wen in Taiwan.

Takano, who chairs the House Veterans Affairs Committee, said, “We are here in Taiwan this week to remind our partners and allies that after two difficult years, our commitment and shared responsibility for a free and secure Indo-Pacific region is stronger than ever.”

Takano also said that the U.S. relationship with Taiwan is rock solid and will become more stable as the relationship between the two deepens.

This is the third visit to Taiwan by members of the U.S. Congress this year. Just a few weeks ago, a delegation of six Republican members of Congress visited Taiwan.

In addition, the Biden administration invited Taiwan to participate in next month’s democracy summit, a decision that was also strongly condemned by the Chinese Communist Party.
