Indian-American Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi visited Taiwan as a member of US House Speaker Nancy Pelosis delegation. Krishnamoorthi, a Democrat who is a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, met Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-Wen along with Pelosi and other members of the Congressional delegation in Taipei, reported IANS.

Sending a pointed message to Beijing, Krishnamoorthi and the members of the delegation also met with Tiananmen Square protest leader Wu’er Kaixi, exiled Hong Kong dissident Lam Wing-kei and Kelsang Gyaltsen Bawa, chairman of the Taipei-based foundation of the Dalai Lama during a visit to the National Human Rights Museum, Taiwan’s Central News Agency reported.

Beijing officials denounced the delegation’s visit as a provocation and an infringement of China’s territorial integrity because it considers Taiwan an integral part of the nation.

Krishnamoorthi, who represents a constituency comprising Chicago suburbs, is a hawk on China. A bill authored by him to assess “grey zone activities” of China and others against the US through actions like disinformation campaigns and terrorism financing and another to monitor risks to US technology from China-United Arab Emirates cooperation were adopted by the House earlier this year.

The defence budget adopted by Congress in 2020 incorporated wording pushed by him urging China to end aggression against India against the Line of Actual Control in the Himalayas.
