Washington, Taiwan donated US$1 million Monday as part of its commitment to assisting the U.S.-led Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS in its ongoing demining work in Syria and Iraq.
A ceremony attended by Taiwan's representative to the U.S. Stanley Kao (???), Managing Director of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) John Norris, U.S. Deputy Special Presidential Envoy Terry Wolff, and acting Deputy Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of State Laura Stone, was held at the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) in Washington to mark the donation.
As a member of the global community, Taiwan will not remain silent in its contributions to international humanitarian efforts, Kao said.
According to Wolff, the donation will go to help private contractors with their demining work in the war-torn countries.
The coalition, which was established in 2014 under the administration of then-U.S. President Barack Obama, has 68 members.
In addition to Taiwan, other partners from the Asia-Pacific region include Afghanistan, Australia, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and South Korea.
Taiwan's participation has consisted of humanitarian assistance, including the donation of temporary housing units for refugees in Iraq and Syria displaced by Islamic State.
