“Diplomacy is something that we all will have to work hard on, regardless of party affiliation,” Tsai said. “The DPP has worked hard and communicated with different parties, the fruits of which can be shared by all, and I would be happy for Chu to take the trip based on the basis we have built.”

Asked if the Chu would receive a higher-status reception, Tsai said she would be happy if Chu could “open up more spaces.”

“It’s a good thing that, each time someone goes [to the US], we open up more space in Taiwan-US relations,” Tsai said.
