Five U.S. lawmakers arrive in Taiwan

A U.S. congressional delegation led by Massachusetts Democratic Senator Ed Markey has arrived in Taipei on an unannounced two-day visit on Sunday, the second U.S. congressional delegation to Taiwan this month.

The new five-member delegation is visiting the self-governing island in an effort to "reaffirm the United States' support for Taiwan" and "will encourage stability and peace across the Taiwan Strait," a spokesperson for Markey said in a statement.

The delegation includes Democratic Reps. John Garamendi, Alan Lowenthal and Don Beyer, and Republican Rep. Aumua Amata Coleman Radewagen, the statement added.
