Tsai in Houston, en route to Central America
President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan has arrived in Houston for a brief transit stop in the U.S. during her trip to Central America.
Tsai is passing through Houston on a trip she says is intended to bolster Taiwan's international profile by reinforcing ties with diplomatic allies in Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala and El Salvador. China has been angered by her refusal to endorse Beijing's concept that Taiwan and the mainland are a single Chinese nation.
