TAIPEI – Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb has arrived in Taiwan on an official visit.
“I appreciate the warm welcome to Taiwan from Douglas Hsu, director for Taiwan North American Affairs,” the governor wrote on social media. Holcomb did not provide information on the exact dates and schedule of the visit. Relations between mainland Chinese authorities and Taiwan deteriorated in early August because of Pelosi’s visit to the island. China has repeatedly warned the U.S. side that this trip will have consequences and that strict measures will be taken. Immediately after Pelosi’s arrival, Beijing announced plans to conduct live-fire military exercises in six areas around Taiwan.
