TAIPEI--A U.S. congressional delegation arrived in Taiwan yesterday as part of an Asian trip to discuss security issues in the Asia-Pacific region, the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) said.
The delegation, led by Rep. Rob Wittman, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, will visit Taiwan Nov. 19-21 to "discuss regional security issues," said Sheila Paskman, chief of the AIT's Public Diplomacy Section.
During the trip to Taiwan, the U.S. delegation, comprised of four representatives, will meet with President Ma Ying-jeou and National Security Council Secretary-General Jason Yuan, Taiwan's Ministry ofForeign Affairs said in a statement.
The group, which will focus on security matters throughout its Asia visit, will also travel to Japan, Paskman said.
