Head of the American delegation, speaker of the lower house of the US Congress  Nancy Pelosi said her visit to Taipei is a testament to the United States' support for Taiwanese democracy.

“Our delegation's visit to Taiwan confirms America's continued commitment to supporting Taiwan's vibrant democracy. America's solidarity with the people of Taiwan is more important today than ever as the world faces a choice between autocracy and democracy.” – the politician wrote on Twitter.

She reminded that her visit does not contradict US foreign policy,  “One China” policy and the US-China Communiqué of 1979. Delegations from the Congress have already visited Taiwan before her.
