Taiwanese Vice President William Lai held a video call with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi -- his second meeting with a senior U.S. politician in two days -- on topics including human rights in China.

Pelosi, who has called for a diplomatic boycott of next month’s Beijing Winter Olympics, reiterated her concern about Chinese human rights abuses, according to a senior Democratic aide familiar with the call. She also discussed strong bipartisan support in Congress for Taiwan, according to the aide.
