Taipei, Jan. 16 (CNA) The European Parliament (EP) on Wednesday passed two resolutions that include articles expressing support for Taiwan's meaningful participation in international organizations.

The resolutions — one on the Common Foreign and Security Policy and another on the Common Security and Defence Policy — include articles reiterating support for Taiwan's "meaningful participation in international organizations, mechanisms and activities."

They also express concern that the interference of autocratic regimes in elections through disinformation and cyber attacks could threaten Asian democracies and regional stability.

The resolutions stressed the importance of strengthening the European Union's (EU) relations with East Asia and Southeast Asia, as well as urging parties involved in the East China Sea, South China Sea and the Taiwan Strait disputes to resolve their differences through peaceful means.
