Campbell urges US, PRC not to meddle

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION:A former US official said both countries should take a ‘hands-off’ approach. He also shared some of his impressions of China’s president

By William Lowther  /  Staff reporter, in WASHINGTON

Campbell said the US clearly had an important role maintaining its unofficial relationship with Taiwan.

“That relationship has flourished in recent years and it has taken place at a time when US-China relations and US-Taiwan relations have generally improved,” he said

Campbell said that a “virtuous cycle” was under way and that it should continue if at all possible.

He said he is pleased that the US has a “much higher engagement” level with Taiwan than it has had in the past.

“I am not going to go through everything here, but we now have a set of circumstances where in terms of our military dialogues, our political dialogues, our high-level visits, Taiwan is on par with any country we have in Asia,” Campbell said.

“And we are doing that within a larger context that respects the dynamics between China and Taiwan,” he said.
