President Tsai Ing-wen says the conflicts between pro-democracy activists and police in Hong Kong are worrisome. She was speaking Monday while meeting with a delegation led by Lord Baron Peter Truscott from the UK.

Tsai said Taiwan is deeply concerned about the situation in the former British colony.

“Taiwan has traveled along its own difficult path towards democracy. Therefore, we are paying particular attention to, and are deeply concerned about, Hong Kong’s freedom and democratic development. I myself and the legislative caucuses of the ruling and opposition camps have all voiced support for Hong Kong. We also strongly believe that [we] must safeguard Taiwan’s democracy and freedom and continue making Taiwan a beacon of democracy while cooperating with like-minded countries to strive for democratic development around the world," said Tsai.     [FULL  STORY]
