TAIPEI, Taiwan — The Kuomintang (KMT) congratulated the citizens of the United Kingdom on holding a peaceful referendum on the country’s European Union membership, in the wake of Britain’s referendum to exit the EU, which was held on Thursday, June 23. According to a KMT press release, the referendum tells the world that the United Kingdom is a “robust democracy governed by the rule of law.”

Eric Huang, chief of the KMT’s international section, said it is vital that Taiwan’s current strong economic and cultural relations with the United Kingdom are maintained. He went on to say that the KMT looks forward to working with the people and government of the United Kingdom as they enter the transition period.

Huang also said that it is vital to Taiwan that engagement with the European Union, which spans across all its members, continues. According to Huang, the KMT supports continued efforts to develop this engagement following the United Kingdom’s exit and welcomes efforts by the European Union’s representative office in Taiwan to achieve this.     [FULL  STORY]
