Palau and Taiwan has set out to strengthen mutual cooperation and official exchanges in the area of law enforcement following of the police cooperation agreement yesterday. In the agreement, consultation on law enforcement skills, combating transnational crimes, personnel training, information sharing, and official visits are among the related mutual assistance identified.
Upon the request of Palau Government, Taiwan will also provide necessary assistance in the training of a drug –task force under the cooperation agreement.
Vice President Raynold "Arnold' Oilouch signed the cooperation agreement on behalf of Palau government on July 5, 2017. The agreement was earlier signed by Taiwan's Minister of the Interior, Jiunn-rong Yeh, last month.
The police cooperation agreement is the third agreement signed between Palau and Taiwan this year.
In January 2017, the Agreement on a Working Holiday Program was signed in Palau when Foreign Minister of Taiwan Dr. David Tawei Lee was invited to attend the installation and Inauguration Ceremonies of the 10th Constitutional Government of the Republic of Palau. Later in March, Minister of State Billy G. Kuartei signed the Agreement concerning Co-operation in Immigration Affairs
and Human Trafficking Preventlon.
"With these three agreements being inked, Palau and Taiwan have broadened their horizon of cooperation which manifests stronger and deeper relations between the two countries," said a Ministry of Justice press release.
