Taipei concerned by US arms delays

Taiwan is concerned about delays in the delivery of weapons by Washington, US Representative Mike Gallagher told US media following a visit to Taiwan.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Jeff Liu (劉永健) yesterday said Gallagher met with President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), Vice President William Lai (賴清德) and National Security Council Secretary-General Wellington Koo (顧立雄) during his visit from Friday last week to Monday.


Biden makes surprise Kyiv visit in solidarity gesture

US President Joe Biden yesterday made an unannounced visit to Kyiv to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, a gesture of solidarity that comes days before the one-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of the country.

Speaking alongside Zelenskiy at Mariinsky Palace, Biden recalled the fears nearly a year ago that Russia’s forces might quickly take the Ukrainian capital.

“One year later, Kyiv stands,” Biden said, jamming his finger for emphasis on a podium decorated with US and Ukrainian flags. “Ukraine stands. Democracy stands. The Americans stand with you, and the world stands with you.”

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe vowed on Friday that he would not “tolerate” any challenge to Japanese control over the contested Diaoyutai Islands (釣魚台), which are called the Senkakus in Japan and are also claimed by Taiwan, after China’s growing incursions into the area.

“We simply cannot tolerate any challenge now and in the future. No nation should make any miscalculation or underestimate the firmness of our resolve,” Abe said at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.
