Taiwan’s foreign ministry thanked UK Prime Minister Liz Truss’s public support for Taiwan. It said the UK, Taiwan, and many other like-minded countries share the same values.

Truss recently stated in a CNN interview that the UK would work with the EU to make sure Taiwan has the ability to defend itself. 

Truss also made similar comments when she was foreign secretary. Last September, she called on like-minded countries to establish a network of liberty to protect the free world order.  In April this year, she called on NATO to help protect Taiwan.  In August, she also called on democratic countries to make sure Taiwan had the ability to defend itself. 

The foreign ministry said that Taiwan and the UK share the same respect for human rights, freedom and democracy. It said it would continue to work with the UK and other democratic countries to resist the threat of authoritarianism.
