TAIPEI (Reuters) - Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen exchanged views with U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, touching on strengthening bilateral interactions and establishing closer cooperation between the two sides, Taiwan's presidential office said in a statement on Saturday.

Tsai took the call with her national security council chief Joseph Wu and Taiwan Foreign Minister David Lee also on the line, the statement said.

The two also shared their views about "promoting domestic economic development and strengthening national defence so that citizens can enjoy better lives and security," the statement said, without detailing if Taiwan's defence needs were raised in the call.
