Saint Lucia has pledged to support recognition of Taiwan as part of the global community.
Deputy Prime Minister Dr. Ernest Hilaire, currently on a five-day official visit to Taiwan, pledged Saint Lucia’s support during a meeting with Vice President Lai Ching-te.
Writing on Facebook, Hilaire disclosed that he expressed heartfelt appreciation on behalf of the Government and People of Saint Lucia for Taiwan’s continued development support.
“I have reaffirmed our commitment to recognising Taiwan as part of the global community and actively participating in international organisations,” he stated.
On Monday, Taiwan failed to get an invitation to the World Health Organization’s annual assembly.
The assembly runs from May 21-30.
Taiwan criticised what it described as its unfair and unjust exclusion from the event, asserting that it was due to pressure from mainland China.
China claims sovereignty over Taiwan, declaring that Taiwan is not a separate country but part of ‘one China’ governed by Beijing.
