Taiwan, U.S. to hold regional dialogue on religious freedom
Taipei, Feb. 10 (CNA) Taiwan and the United States will jointly hold a regional dialogue of civil societies on religious freedom March 11-12, which will be attended by U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom Sam Brownback, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA).
The event, which is aimed at promoting religious freedom, human rights and democracy in the Indo-Pacific region, is being organized by the Taipei-based non-profit Taiwan Foundation for Democracy (TFD), commissioned by MOFA, the ministry said.
American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) spokesperson Amanda Mansour told CNA that the U.S. views religious freedom as an important issue and looks forward to jointly hosting the event.
AIT represents U.S. interests in Taiwan in the absence of diplomatic links between Taipei and Washington.
Meanwhile, TFD President Ford Liao said the regional event on religious freedom will take place in Taipei and is expected to draw scholars and experts in the field, officials and religious representatives from more than 10 Indo-Pacific nations.
Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan, who serves as TFD chairman, Foreign Affairs Minister and TFD Vice Chairman Joseph Wu and AIT Director Brent Christensen will also attend the event's opening March 11 and deliver speeches, Liao said.
