Taipei, July 13 (CNA) The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) welcomed Saturday a decision by St. Vincent and the Grenadines to set up an embassy in Taiwan and said it was willing to provide any assistance necessary.
The Caribbean nation currently maintains a consulate general in Taipei.
MOFA spokesman Andrew Lee (李憲章) said the ministry welcomed the announcement made by the Vincentian government and was looking forward to working with the embassy to create more opportunities for cooperation in the future.
Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries in 1981, bilateral exchanges and cooperation have been strong, Lee said. [FULL STORY]
