(The Diplomat, By Gerrit van der Wees) Five U.S. Senators wrote Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi a letter in early February asking her to invite Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen to speak before Congress as a show of support for Taiwan, which has been facing increasing hostility from Mainland China since Tsai's election in 2016. Taiwan today is very different from the Republic of China from which the United States switched diplomatic recognition to the People's Republic of China, and the senators' request reflects the changing times. The invitation, if extended, should also be accompanied with a signal that the U.S. Government is ready for policy change. <Accessed 2019-02-10>
