STAFF WRITER

Legislative Yuan speaker Wang Jin-pyng (王金平) conferred Friday a medal of the Order of Brilliant Star with Grand Cordon on Zury Rios Montt, deputy president of the Guatemalan National Congress, on behalf of Taiwan's government for her contribution to the promotion of friendship and cooperation between the two countries. Rios was awarded the medal at a ceremony at the Republic of China Embassy, which was followed by a reception. Wang thanked Rios for her personal contributions to the improvement of bilateral relations between Taiwan and Guatemala and expressed appreciation of Guatemalan support for Taipei's bids to join international organizations. In reply, Rios said the bilateral relations are based on friendship and Guatemala has set an example for cooperation with Taiwan. The Wang delegation left for Miami, Florida, en route to Washington Saturday after winding up a three-day visit to Guatemala.
