The third US Congressional delegation of this month to visit Taiwan Republic will arrive this week, along with a delegation from the Japanese Diet (reportedly with a focus on national security). Also, delegations from legislatures of Canada, the UK, Germany, Denmark, Lithuania, and the EU have also announced plans to visit Taiwan Republic soon. Eventually, western democracies must remove the self-imposed ban on high-level cabinet executives visiting Taiwan, particularly national security officials and military leaders, Taiwan’s redefining of the “status quo” as premised on its democratic sovereignty matches well with democratically elected legislators visiting. 22.8.2022
