'America won't abandon Taiwan,' says Sen. Duckworth

US lawmaker stresses need to cooperate with Japan, South Korea in Indo-Pacific

WASHINGTON -- U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth said she wanted Taiwanese people to know that "America will not abandon Taiwan" and that "we will show up, and not let them face trials and tribulations alone," explaining her recent trip to the island in an interview with Nikkei.

Expressing alarm over China's lack of respect for "territorial borders," the Democratic senator from Illinois also urged greater cooperation with allies like Japan and South Korea in the greater Indo-Pacific region.
