Taipei, Jan. 12 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) has said in a letter to Pope
Francis that the people of Taiwan are empathetic to migrants and refugees because of Taiwan’s history and its continuing status as an immigrant society.
The letter, which was released by the Presidential Office on Friday, was in recognition of the pope’s support of migrants and refugees in his message for the 2018 World Day of Peace titled “Migrants and Refugees: Men and Women in Search of Peace.”
