"Our Visit Honours US' Commitment To Supporting Taiwan Democracy": Nancy Pelosi
Nancy Pelosi's tweets read:

"Our delegation's visit to Taiwan honors America's unwavering commitment to supporting Taiwan's vibrant Democracy.

Our discussions with Taiwan leadership reaffirm our support for our partner and promote our shared interests, including advancing a free & open Indo-Pacific region.

America's solidarity with the 23 million people of Taiwan is more important today than ever, as the world faces a choice between autocracy and democracy.

Our visit is one of several Congressional delegations to Taiwan - and it in no way contradicts longstanding United States policy, guided by the Taiwan Relations Act of 1979, U.S.-China Joint Communiques and the Six Assurances.

The United States continues to oppose unilateral efforts to change the status quo."
