Blinken's call for support was to assist Taiwan in its participation in international organizations related to health, climate change, culture, education and transportation. According to Sandra Oudkirk, the director of the American Institute in Taiwan, the U.S. is deeply committed to working with Taiwan in areas such as supply chains and cybersecurity.
"The value of our partnership and our support for Taiwan is rock solid. We are committed to deepening our ties with Taiwan," Oudkirk said. The U.S. continued support and partnership with Taiwan comes as tensions between Taiwan and China continue to rise.
