EU Representative to Taiwan Frederic Laplanche said last night that “the Nobel Prize is also an encouragement for all Europeans in Taiwan to share a message of peace and to continue to develop relations with Taiwan in all areas on the very solid basis of our shared values.”

Minister of Foreign Affairs David Lin (林永樂), who was formerly a representative to the EU, offered congratulations to the EU, saying: “The EU deserves the award because maintenance of peace is the greatest achievement of the EU.”
