BASSETERRE, ST. KITTS, OCTOBER 4TH 2012 (CUOPM) – Taiwan’s Resident Ambassador to the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, His Excellency Miguel Tsao has expressed thanks to St. Kitts and Nevis’ Prime Minister the Rt. Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas for the support given to his Asian nation during the General Debate at the 67th General Assembly of the United Nations.
“I would like to express my profound gratitude to you, Prime Minister on behalf of the People and the Government of the Republic of China. You spoke for us and your message was powerful, so strong. We are so moved by your staunch support, I would like to take this opportunity to thank your consistent support to Taiwan,” said Ambassador Tsao just before handing over a financial contribution to Prime Minister Douglas for the second phase of the street lighting project.
In his address to the United Nations last Friday, Prime Minister Douglas again called for the Republic of China (Taiwan) to be allowed to be accepted as an equal partner in the international community.
He said that throughout the twenty-nine years as a sovereign nation, the Republic of China on Taiwan has been a highly valued partner and ally and throughout the nation, evidence of the collaborative efforts between both nations abound in areas as diverse as agriculture, agro-tourism, green energy, information technology, community development, and education.
Dr. Douglas pointed out that even in St. Kitts and Nevis, and in the region, Taiwan’s unfailing and valued contributions to the work of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the International Civil Aviation Organization, the World Health Assembly, and others have long reflected their outstanding credentials as a valued and impactful member of the global community.
He told world leaders that it was “only fitting and just that all remaining strictures pertaining to Taiwan’s standing among the international community of nations are removed.”
