Taiwan and the Czech Republic marked another milestone in their bilateral relationship, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) proclaimed, as both sides agreed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on helping Ukraine rebuild key infrastructure, November 10.
The pact, which will focus on water purification facilities and symbiotic energy systems, was signed via videolink by Ke Liang-ruey, head of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Prague, and David Steinke, head of the Czech Economic and Cultural Office Taipei.
The agreement inaugurates the first collaborative Ukraine aid project between the two governments and, according to Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Roy Chun Lee, demonstrates the commitment of the like-minded partners to protecting Ukraine’s sovereignty.
MOFA also released a short film, November 15, showcasing Taiwan’s humanitarian aid program for Ukraine. The video details the amount of aid that has been delivered, and how it has been used in collaboration with the Czech Republic, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.
