Rubio, Merkley, Colleagues Introduce Resolution Commemorating 45 Years of Taiwan Relations Act

Apr 10, 2024 | Comunicados de Prensa

The People’s Republic of China under the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has increased its aggression, through economic, military, and political coercion, to undermine Taiwan’s sovereignty and erode its international standing.

U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Jeff Merkley (D-OR) introduced a resolution to reaffirm our nation’s commitment to Taiwan’s vibrant democracy and to recognize the 45th anniversary of the enactment of the landmark Taiwan Relations Act.

  • “As we commemorate 45 years since the historic enactment of the Taiwan Relations Act, the United States reaffirms its support to our democratic ally in the Indo-Pacific region. May this cornerstone of our bilateral relations remain strong as Taiwan confronts constant threats from Communist China.” – senador Rubio

  • “The United States and Taiwan share many bedrock values — including a commitment to democracy, human rights, and the rule of law. Strong partnerships like the United States’ with Taiwan are crucial to advancing our interests around the globe. This bipartisan, bicameral resolution honors our unwavering commitment to a key democratic ally.” – Senator Merkley

U.S. Representatives Ami Bera (D-CA), Mario Díaz-Balart (R-FL), Gerry Conolly (D-VA), and Andy Barr (R-KY) introduced the companion resolution in the House.
