The United States Department of State on March 25 issued a press readout on a meeting held in Washington, DC, between US Deputy Secretary of State Kurt Campbell and Lithuanian Minister of Foreign Affairs Gabrielius Landsbergis. During the meeting, the two sides reaffirmed the importance of maintaining peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. The United States also highlighted support for Lithuania amid continued coercive measures by China.


The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) sincerely welcomes and appreciates that the United States has publicly expressed support for cross-strait peace and stability jointly with Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Germany, and other like-minded nations on separate occasions during March.


China’s routine application of political pressure, economic coercion, gray-zone tactics, and other means in pursuit of its political ends has elicited high levels of international concern. Democratic countries have become even more united in the face of authoritarian challenges. MOFA welcomes the fact that other countries continue to focus on security across the Taiwan Strait. As a member of the democratic community, Taiwan will continue to coordinate closely with like-minded nations to jointly respond to the coercive conduct of authoritarian nations, safeguard the rules-based international order, and ensure peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait and throughout the region.
