WASHINGTON – U.S. Representative Steve Chabot (R-Ohio) senior member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, Chairman Emeritus of the Asia and Pacific Subcommittee and Founder and Co-Chair of the Congressional Taiwan Caucus released the following statement regarding the Solomon Islands’ decision to end its diplomatic relations with Taiwan:

 

“I am disappointed to hear that the Solomon Islands and Taiwan will no longer be continuing their productive diplomatic partnership and I remain deeply concerned by China’s ongoing effort to isolate Taiwan diplomatically. As a longtime supporter of Taiwan, and furthering U.S.-Taiwan relations, I believe that the Solomon Islands made a grievous misstep today, one that cannot easily be reversed. I hope my colleagues will join me as we continue the fight for Taiwan’s rightful place on the world’s stage.”
