US senator in Taiwan to discuss regional security
U.S. Senator Tom Cotton is in Taiwan on a four-day visit to meet with Taiwanese officials and discuss such issues as regional security and trade, according to the American Institute in Taiwan.
Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas, serves on the Senate’ s Banking Committee, the Intelligence Committee, and the Armed Services Committee, where he chairs the Air Land Power Subcommittee.
“Senator Cotton will have a wide range of meetings with officials in Taiwan to discuss issues of mutual interest to the United States and Taiwan, including regional security and trade issues,” the AIT said in a statement late Tuesday.
The AIT represents U.S. interests in Taiwan in the absence of bilateral diplomatic ties.
