A delegation of high-level Taiwanese diplomats said Thursday that many of their own people oppose a major trade deal with mainland China, and also made a rare public acknowledgment of rising domestic resistance to U.S. pressure to expand a radar system for detecting long-range missile threats from Beijing.
Thirty-five years after President Jimmy Carter signed the Taiwan Relations Act obligating the U.S. to give the island the means to defend itself against an attack by China, ties today between Washington and Taipei are at an all-time high.

A senior adviser to the Taiwanese government on Wednesday downplayed the likelihood that a war will erupt in the festering dispute between Taiwan, China and Japan over a chain of tiny islands in the East China Sea.
America's strategic interests in Asia go hand in hand with democratic values. Not by accident, all of our formal security allies in Asia - Australia, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines and Thailand - are democracies. And events are trending further in this direction.
U.S. officials have praised the re-election of Taiwan's president, even though it sets the island nation and longtime U.S. ally on course for closer ties with mainland China.
The fish farmers on the terraced plains above Taiwan's west coast are riding a China boom, exporting tons of sweet, flaky milkfish to the mainland, thanks to import duties Beijing lowered to win over the island's voters.
