Taipei, Feb. 25 (CNA) Taiwan on Friday announced that it will take part in international sanctions against Russia over its invasion of Ukraine, but did not provide any details immediately.

The Taiwan government deeply regrets that Russia, instead of resolving disputes through peaceful diplomatic negotiations, has chosen to use force and intimidation in bullying others, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said in a statement. 

"In order to compel Russia to halt its military aggression against Ukraine, and to restart peaceful dialogue among all parties concerned as soon as possible, the government of the Republic of China (Taiwan) announces it will join international economic sanctions against Russia," according to MOFA.
