The five-person delegation was led by Democratic Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts.
According to the American Institute in Taiwan, the delegation is visiting between Sunday and Monday as part of an Asian trip. They will meet with the country’s top leaders to discuss, among other things, the relationship between the United States and Taiwan, regional security and trade.

China has repeatedly threatened to use military force to control Taiwan. Last week, China began its largest-ever maneuvers near Taiwan, the day after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.
