Taiwan is an incessant wellspring of strain among Beijing and Washington.

"To forsake Taiwan is leave a majority rules system and opportunity," he said. "There's a backfire filling on the planet to thuggery - to the trouble makers."

Congressperson Bob Menendez, executive of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the innovation center point is a "nation of worldwide importance" and its security has suggestions for the world.
