President of Nauru His Excellency Lionel Rouwen Aingimea says the country has enjoyed a close relationship with Taiwan for almost four decades and he looks forward to it continuing well into the future.

Mr Aingimea said the two nations have a lot in common and noted that Nauru’s Parliament passed a historic resolution in March recognising Taiwan’s sovereign rights.

“Taiwan has been a good partner and has worked closely with us in many sectors that have brought great benefits to the people of Nauru,” he said.

The President also said the two countries share many values.

“Both Taiwan and Nauru have different challenges, but what links us are the values of democracy, freedom, the rule of law and global responsibility.”

Nauru continues to support Taiwan’s involvement in world forums and signed a petition calling for Taiwan’s participation in the United Nations.

“Nauru considers its relationship with Taiwan as that of family and we stand with Taiwan in upholding democratic values and the rule of law,” President Aingimea affirmed.
