Abstract

This study examines the progress in US-Taiwan relations during an era of cross-Strait rapprochement. In order to place the issue in the proper historical context, the paper begins with a brief overview of bilateral relations during the administration of President Chen Shui-bian (2000-2008). The study next discusses improvements in Taipei's relations with Beijing and shows how Washington supports the cross-Strait rapprochement. In conclusion, the author suggests that, despite arguments to the contrary, it is clear that US-Taiwan relations have moved forward in parallel with improvements in Taiwan-Chinese mainland relations since 2008.
