Pelosi says US support for democracy in Taiwan 'remains ironclad'
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told political leaders in Taiwan on Wednesday that the United States will not "abandon our commitment" to the island.
Pelosi landed in Taiwan on Tuesday, defying warnings from Chinese officials who said consequences will arise from her visit to the island nation that China claims as part of its territory. On Wednesday, she met with Taiwanese Vice President Tsai Chi-chang and received the Order of Propitious Clouds with Special Grand Cordon from President Tsai Ing-wen. At both events she gave remarks promoting security and economy issues and commending Taiwan's governance.
