US seeks stronger ties with Taiwan despite historic 1979 accords
In spite of Chinese pressure, US government officials will now be able to meet their Taiwanese colleagues more easily. The State Department in Washington announced the new guidelines on Friday, " in accordance with our unofficial relationship."

The department wants to encourage involvement with Taiwan through the relaxation. The Communist regime in Beijing sees Taiwan as a renegade province and does not want countries to maintain official contacts with it.

The US emphasizes that Taiwan is "a vibrant democracy "and an important security and economic partner" that is also a good force in the international community.

The US has not considered Taiwan an independent state since 1979. Washington then turned around and recognized the regime in Beijing as the only government of China. Since 1949, the island of Taiwan has been in the hands of nationalist, anti-communist Chinese who fled mainland China after losing the Civil War.
