MONTREAL — A Taiwanese official has admitted outside the venue of the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO’s) assembly that Taiwan faces a great challenge in its bid to participate in the event, but said it was receiving warm support from allies of the country.
Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) Deputy Director Ho Shu-ping (何淑萍) made the remarks in an interview with CNA Saturday, before setting off to return to Taiwan after a six-day trip in Montreal.
Heading a seven-member delegation, Ho flew to the Canadian city Sept. 27 when the ICAO opened the 39th session of its assembly there, at the ICAO’s headquarters.
Taiwan was not invited to the event, most likely because of the objections of Beijing, but the Taiwanese government decided to send the delegation here nonetheless to express its appreciation to countries that have shown their support for Taiwan, according to Ho. [FULL STORY]
