By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that Minister Joseph Wu and Interior Minister Lin Yu-chang visited Taoyuan International Airport to see off the Taiwan search and rescue team bound for Turkey.

 The team will help with the rescue effort in the wake of Monday’s powerful 7.8 magnitude earthquake.

“We remain ever grateful for the country’s immediate help after the devastating 921 earthquake in 1999, and now it’s our turn to hit the ground running,” Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted.

“We would like to express our sorrow and condolences in the wake of the earthquake in the Kahramanmaras province of Turkiye.

Taiwan always stands in solidarity with its friends around the world,” the Taiwan Embassy in Belize said.
