Response to Petition

Response to We the People Petition on Taiwan

The United States supports Taiwan's vibrant democracy, which allows for robust political dialogue on a range of issues. The future of the Cross-Strait Trade in Services Agreement is an issue for the people on Taiwan to decide. We hope the discussion can be conducted peacefully and civilly.

As a policy matter, maintenance of peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait is in the political, security, and economic interest of the United States. We support peaceful resolution of cross-Strait differences in a manner acceptable to people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait, and we are opposed to any effort to resolve cross-Strait differences through intimidation, coercion, or military force.

Tell us what you think about this response and We the People.
