Washington, July 10 (CNA) Taiwan donated US$1 million Monday as part of its commitment to assisting the U.S.-led Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS in its ongoing demining work in Syria and Iraq.

A ceremony attended by Taiwan’s representative to the U.S. Stanley Kao (高碩泰), Managing Director of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) John Norris, U.S. Deputy Special Presidential Envoy Terry Wolff, and acting Deputy Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Department of State Laura Stone, was held at the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) in Washington to mark the donation.
