TAIPEI -- Former top defense and security officials sent by U.S. President Joe Biden arrived in Taipei late Tuesday to shore up Taiwan's international support in the face of threats from China -- a visit that will be followed by former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is set to land Wednesday evening.
