TAIPEI -- Security talks between Taipei and Tokyo on Friday were focused on Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co.'s planned investment in Japan and future collaboration on the chip supply chain, a key lawmaker in Taiwan's ruling party said.

The comments were made at the first ever regional security dialogue between the ruling parties of Taiwan and Japan -- a meeting, already condemned by Beijing, that comes amid growing Chinese aggression in the region.
