Miami, FL— U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement on the 110th anniversary of the Republic of China (Taiwan). Earlier this week, Rubio condemned Beijing’s incursion into Taiwanese airspace.
“As Taiwan celebrates its 110th National Day, its people have much to be proud of,” Rubio said. “Even under the most difficult geopolitical circumstances, the Taiwanese have maintained a vibrant democracy that powers a world-class economy. The United States expresses gratitude for the steadfast friendship and enduring bond our nations continue to share. When the pandemic reached U.S. shores and personal protective equipment was in short supply, Taiwan stepped in to help. When Taiwan found itself in need of vaccines earlier this year, the United States reciprocated. We look forward to further strengthening our relationship in the years and decades to come.”
