Nikkei and Yomiuri wrote that a U.S. delegation to Taiwan held talks with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen on Wednesday in Taipei. Nikkei speculated that the delegation’s visit to Taiwan was intended to reiterate Washington’s commitment to the region in response to concern that China may increase its pressure on Taiwan following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Mike Mullen, a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and head of the bipartisan delegation, reportedly told Tsai at the presidential office on Wednesday that the delegation was sent to Taiwan to express the United States’ support for its strong partnership with Taiwan and that the United States opposes any unilateral changes to the status quo.
