Tsai congratulates Moon, hopes for stronger cooperation
Taipei, May 10 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen congratulated Moon Jae-in on Wednesday on his election as president of South Korea and expressed hope that the two countries will continue to strengthen their cooperation based on the good foundation that already exists.
In the congratulatory message released by the Presidential Office, Tsai congratulated the people of South Korea and Moon on behalf of the Republic of China (Taiwan) government and its people.
As democratic countries, Taiwan and South Korea share the values of freedom and democracy, and they have interacted frequently over the years in the economic, trade, and cultural spheres, Tsai said.
Civil exchanges and interactions have also been on the rise, she said.
The president also expressed the hope that under Moon's leadership the welfare of the people will be promoted and cooperation between Taiwan and South Korea will continue to be strengthened based on the foundation that already exists.
In addition, she looked forward to Taiwan and South Korea promoting the development of stability, peace and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region.
Moon, of the Democratic Party, was elected president with around 41 percent of the vote, easily outpacing his two closest rivals, Hong Jun-pyo of the Liberty Korea Party who got 24 percent and Ahn Cheol-soo of the People's Party who got 21.4 percent.
The election came after months of political turmoil caused by former South Korean President Park Geun-hye's corruption scandal.
