Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen has told a visiting US delegation of former senior officials that the Chinese military’s activities had threatened peace and stability in the region, and pointed to what she said were recent “provocations”.
“We are very willing to work with like-minded countries, including the United States, to jointly safeguard the peace and stability of the Indo-Pacific and deter adventurous manoeuvres and provocations,” Tsai said in the meeting, which was broadcast live on Facebook on Thursday.
