Brussels, Dec. 4 (CNA) European Parliament Vice President Nicola Beer has expressed an interest in visiting Taiwan as soon as travel conditions permit to show support for Taiwan at a time when China's threat against it is growing.

Beer made her interest known in a video conference with Tsai Ming-yen (蔡明彥), Taiwan's representative to the European Union (EU) and Belgium, on Thursday.

In the virtual meeting, Beer voiced her support for Taiwan and Hong Kong, and pre-recorded talks by Deputy Legislative Speaker Tsai Chi-chang (蔡其昌) were broadcast, with Tsai inviting Beer to Taiwan.

In an email response to CNA later Thursday, Beer's office said she would visit Taiwan "as soon as the COVID-19 context allows this."    [FULL  STORY]
