U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi left Taiwan Wednesday after a visit that drew world attention and further strained relations between the United States and China. She summed up her visit to the island of Taiwan. Pelosi announced this on her Twitter page.
"Our delegation had the special privilege of meeting with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen today. We discussed how America and Taiwan can deepen our economic ties, further strengthen our security partnership, and protect our shared democratic values," Pelosi said.
Pelosi was also presented with an order as a symbol of U.S.-Taiwan friendship.
"America remains unwavering in its commitment to the people of Taiwan - now and for decades to come,"
The congressional delegation also met with the vice president of the legislature in Taipei.
"We reaffirmed our ironclad support for Taiwan's democracy, including security and stability, economic growth and governance," Pelosi concluded.
