Taipei, Dec. 12 (CNA) Taiwan will strengthen communication with other countries to obtain the latest anti-terrorism information from around the world and will step up security at its overseas representative offices, a foreign affairs spokeswoman said Saturday, after the country’s flag showed up for the second time in a video purportedly released by an extremist group.
Eleanor Wang (王珮玲) said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was aware of a new propaganda video claimed by the Islamic State, which showed an image of the national flags of 60 countries, including Taiwan.
It was the second time in less than a month that the image appeared in a video said to be from the extremist militant group. [FULL STORY]
