Taiwan Quick Take: US-Libyan ties welcomed

Taiwan respects and welcomes the decision of the US on Monday to re-establish diplomatic relations with Libya, the acting spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said yesterday. Wang Chien-yeh (王建業) said that oil-rich Libya, once accused by the US of being a source of terrorism, has reformed itself in many areas over the past few years, including taking action to assist in global anti-terrorist efforts following the terrorist attacks on US soil on Sept. 11, 2001. It was the sincere and concrete actions taken by Libya in the fight against terrorism that led the two countries, once hostile to each other, to seek reconciliation and to work to establish mutual trust, Wang noted. Wang made the remarks at the ministry's regular press briefing.
