(MENAFN) Baushuan Ger, Taiwan's ambassador to India, lauded India as a defender of democracy that consistently stands up for justice, peace, and stability and praised the "gargantuan untapped well" of profitable agreements that may result from New Delhi recognizing the island "in its own right."
Because India "is just like Taiwan, standing at the forefront in the face of aggressive and belligerent authoritarian regimes," Ger, the director of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Center in India, claimed in an interview with PTI on Sunday, "we need to join hands to fend off the expansion of autocracy."
“It is my sincere hope that India sees Taiwan in its own right,” Ger declared, asserting that “closer collaboration between the two is not only desirable but necessary.”
He clarified, making reference to the rising appeal of yoga and Bollywood films in Taiwan as indications of cultural similarity, “we can and should collaborate more on cyber, space, maritime, green energy, food security and even tourism and gastronomy.”
