DENVER (AP) — Taiwan's president will dine in Denver Friday during a visit to the U.S.
President Tsai Ing-wen plans to stop in Colorado for two days on her way back home after visiting Caribbean countries where Taiwan has diplomatic relations.
She will dine Friday at a Denver hotel with officials, some of whom will come from Wyoming, which recently opened a trade office in Taiwan.
Tsai considered visiting Cheyenne during the trip but decided not to because of logistical difficulties.
The potential visit led to a verbal skirmish between Gov. Mark Gordon and Cheyenne Mayor Marian Orr over planning.
Orr plans to attend the Denver dinner. Gordon says he has a scheduling conflict.
