On November 26, American Institute in Taiwan Director Sandra Oudkirk delivered her first keynote speech. She said, “The PRC’s provocative military activities near Taiwan are destabilizing, risk miscalculation, and undermine regional peace and stability. Continued efforts by Beijing to choke Taiwan’s international space, pressure its friends, and interfere in Taiwan’s democratic system represent a threat to all democracies.”
On security cooperation, she emphasized that the U. S. is committed to helping Taiwan maintain its ability to deter aggression and defend itself. “We have a shared and abiding interest in peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. We consider this central to the security and stability of the broader Indo-Pacific region and to the United States and are deeply concerned by ongoing PRC efforts to undermine that stability.”
“U.S. support for Taiwan remains rock-solid, principled, and bipartisan and is in line with America’s one China policy and longstanding American commitments.”
She further indicated that the U.S. would help Taiwan participate in international organizations to share Taiwan’s successful experiences. The U. S. will work with Taiwan to maintain the reliability, stability, and security of the global supply chains and ensure cyber security.
