America remains unwavering in our commitment to the people of Taiwan, now and for decades to come - Pelosi

US House of Representative Speaker Nancy Pelosi informed of her meeting with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen. 

Taking to Twitter, she said that in the meeting with Ing-wen, a discussion took place on how the US and Taiwan can deepen their economic ties, further strengthen their security partnership and defend their shared democratic values.

At a time, when US lawmakers are making trips across Asia, Pelosi with others departed from the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday afternoon and took a roundabout route that appeared designed to avoid transiting the South China Sea, where Beijing has an established military presence. The plane landed in Taipei at 10:44 p.m. local time.

“Make no mistake: America remains unwavering in our commitment to the people of Taiwan– now & for decades to come”, - Pelosi wrote on the microblogging site, after meeting with Ing-wen. 

She was conferred with a civilian award, the Order of Propitious Clouds with Special Grand Cordon by Ing-wen, which she called “a symbol of our treasured friendship”.
