Taipei--Vice President Chen Chien-jen (???) said Tuesday that Taiwan will continue to work with foreign friends in contributing to the planet's sustainable development and issues related to climate change.
Chen made the commitment during a meeting with a group of experts on sustainable development led by Alistair Edgar, executive director of the Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS), at the Presidential Office.
The vice president thanked his guests for having worked with Taiwan's overseas-based officials to stage seminars on important global issues and for sharing their expertise and professional knowledge with Taiwanese government officials.
Though Taiwan is in a "delicate" situation diplomatically, it has never hesitated in taking on a proper role in global projects as a responsible member of the international community, he said.
No countries in the world can be immune from the impact of such major issues as global warming and sustainable development, he said, adding that Taiwan, which is well positioned to offer assistance, should not be excluded from international efforts at achieving mankind's common goals.
"We will keep working with friends like you to make our contributions to sustainable development and issues related to climate change," Chen said.
