Legislative speaker You to attend U.S. National Prayer Breakfast
Taipei, Jan. 29 (CNA) Legislative speaker You Si-kun (游錫堃) will travel to the United States on Tuesday to speak at a summit on religious freedom and attend the U.S. National Prayer Breakfast.
A person with knowledge of You’s itinerary told CNA he would depart for the U.S. on Tuesday and deliver a speech on Wednesday at the International Religious Freedom (IRF) Summit in Washington, D.C.
You will also attend the U.S. National Prayer Breakfast -- an annual gathering of political and religious leaders in Washington -- on Thursday, before taking a return flight from New York in the early hours of Friday, according to the individual, who wished to remain anonymous.
The source said You had originally planned a nine-day visit to the U.S., but condensed his schedule due to domestic political factors, including the swearing in of a new Cabinet and the Legislature's review of a proposal to distribute surplus tax revenue to the public.
The Legislature’s new session will begin on Wednesday.
