Former US Senator Chris Dodd, along with former deputy secretaries of state Richard Armitage and James Steinberg, arrived in Taiwan on April 14, 2021. The three-day visit was organised at the request of US President Joe Biden. Observers say Washington may use the unofficial visit to urge Taiwan to act prudently in its handling of cross-strait relations. The US visit has angered the Chinese mainland, and Beijing has warned of military action against the island which it considers a renegade province. The People’s Liberation Army announced it will hold live-fire drills in waters off the island’s southwest coast starting on April 15, the same day Taiwan president Tsai Ing-wen met the US delegation.
