Taipei, Oct. 19 (CNA) Six of Taiwan's diplomatic allies have spoken out in support of the country at the just concluded general assembly of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) held in Chile, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Saturday.

Interpol hosted its 88th General Assembly in the South American country from Tuesday through Friday. Taiwan, which is currently not a member of the international police organization, had asked to participate as an observer, but the request was ignored.

In a statement, MOFA said the six countries that spoke during the general assembly in support of Taiwan included Belize, eSwatini, Guatemala, Honduras, Paraguay, St. Kitts and Nevis.

Meanwhile, 11 allies also separately sent letters to Interpol President Kim Jong-yang asking the organization to arrange for Taiwan's participation in the run up to Interpol's 88th General Assembly, the ministry said.    [FULL  STORY]
