US diplomat Sandra Oudkirk on Friday relayed the country’s “rock-solid” commitment to helping Taiwan defend itself.Speaking in an interview with CNN on Tuesday, Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen confirmed the small presence of US troops on the island for training purposes.
At the new AIT director’s first presser the emphasis was on commitment, continuity, and multilateralism. Oudkirk reiterated that US commitment to Taiwan is “rock-solid” but it always has been. The only shift under Biden, she said, is a renewed interest in working with partners.
“We will be working more closely with our trusted friends and partners so that our supply chains can’t be used against us as leverage,” Sandra Oudkirk, director of the American Institute in Taiwan says.
