Marshall Islands will always support Taiwan: parliamentary speaker

Taipei, March 4 (CNA) The Marshall Islands will always show support for Taiwan based on the two countries' shared values of freedom and democracy, the country's parliamentary speaker Kenneth A. Kedi said Monday.
Kedi, who arrived on a four-day visit Monday morning, told Taiwan's Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan at a meeting later in Taipei that his country's parliament recently passed a resolution expressing the Pacific island nation's support for Taiwan.
The resolution praises Taiwan's democratic achievements and affirms that Taiwan is a worthy partner for peace and prosperity in the region, Kedi said.
The Marshall Islands was especially intent on passing the resolution at a time when China continues to heighten its hostility toward Taiwan and its allies because of its desire for peace and stability in the region, according to the parliamentary speaker.
Su, meanwhile, thanked Kedi for helping seal a bilateral cooperation agreement on policing and another pact on strategic cooperation signed between the two countries last year.
President Tsai Ing-wen, who met with Kedi and his visiting delegation at the Presidential Office later in the day, thanked the Marshall Islands for its firm backing of Taiwan.
The Republic of China (Taiwan) highly values its relations with the Pacific island nation and expects exchanges to continue to expand across a broad spectrum of fields such as education, culture and medicine, the president said.
During his four-day visit, Kedi is expected to tour the Bao'an Temple in Taipei, the New Taipei City Library in Banqiao, and other cultural facilities and centers across the country, according to a Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) statement on Monday.
