U.S. supports Taiwan's meaningful participation in Interpol
Washington, Oct. 16 (CNA) The United States supports Taiwan's meaningful participation in international organizations, Interpol included, a U.S. State Department spokesperson said Tuesday.
The spokesperson made the statement after Taiwan confirmed Tuesday it is asking friendly countries to speak up at an upcoming Interpol executive committee meeting to support Taiwan's participation at Interpol's General Assembly next month in Dubai.
The spokesperson said Washington supports Taiwan's participation in international organizations whether or not they require statehood.
"In organizations that require statehood for membership, the United States supports Taiwan's meaningful participation. This includes ICAO, Interpol, WHO, and the more than 60 international organizations in which Taiwan participates," the spokesperson said.
The Criminal Investigation Bureau (CIB) said in a statement Monday that it has sent a letter to ask that it participate as an observer in Interpol's General Assembly to be held from Nov. 16 to 21 at Dubai.
Bob Chen (陳龍錦), director-general of MOFA's Department of International Organizations, confirmed Tuesday that Interpol has received the letter sent by CIB Commissioner Tsai Tsan-po (蔡蒼柏) in September but has yet to respond.
