TSU group seeks friendship in Russia

CNA , MOSCOW

The TSU has decided to push for the establishment of a Taiwan-Russia Parliamentary Amity Association as part of the party's efforts to help boost substantial relations between the two countries, a TSU legislator said Saturday in Moscow.

TSU caucus whip Su Ying-kuei (蘇盈貴), who is leading a TSU delegation to Russia, made the remarks during a dinner party hosted by the Taiwanese representative office in Moscow for the Taipei-Moscow Economic and Cultural Coordination Commission (TMECCC).

The TSU hopes that the planned amity association will be set up during the upcoming session of the Legislative Yuan, Su noted. He further said that his party will also seek to create a Moscow branch of the Association of Friends of Lee Teng-hui (李登輝).

During the dinner party, the TSU delegation members, including legislators Wu Tung-sheng (吳東昇), Liao Pen-yen (廖本煙), Ho Min-hao (何敏豪) and Huang Tsung-yuan (黃宗源), spoke highly of all the TMECCC staff members for their untiring efforts to boost bilateral exchanges in the fields of economy, culture, science and technology between the two countries.

Wu, also a director of the Taiwan-Russia Association (TRA), said that non-official relations between both countries are getting closer after China Airlines and Russia's Transaero made direct chartered flights between Taipei and Moscow in August.
