President Tsai Ing-wen has met with members of an American delegation at the Presidential Office, during which she reiterated Taiwan's willingness to work with the US to preserve peace and stability in the region.

Tsai also voiced concerns about Beijing, saying China has frequently sent military vessels and aircraft to carry out manoeuvres near Taiwan and such "actions alter the status quo in the Indo-Pacific and threaten regional peace and stability."

And Tsai went on to say Taiwan will continue to "work with like-minded countries, including the U-S, to jointly safeguard the peace and stability of the Indo-Pacific and deter adventurous manoeuvres and provocations."

The US delegation is being led by former Senator Chris Dodd, and speaking briefly to reporters he touted the close ties between Washington and Taipei.

Dodd and former deputy secretaries of state Richard Armitage and James Steinberg are the first U-S delegation to visit Taiwan since President Joe Biden took office in January.
