The United States congratulates President Ma on his victory in Saturday’s elections in Taiwan. Taiwan has once again held a free and fair election. The people of Taiwan should be proud of this latest milestone for their democracy. We share with the Taiwan people a profound interest in the continuation of cross-Strait peace and stability. We look forward to working with Mr. Ma and Taiwan’s leaders from both parties to ensure that our strong economic and people-to-people relationship is maintained.
