“The Republic of China, Taiwan, as a member of the international community’s democratic camp, is willing to act in the spirit of ‘Taiwan Can Help’ and based on humanitarian considerations, our country will provide Ukraine with urgently needed medical relief supplies in a timely manner,” it added.
Taiwan’s official name is the Republic of China, whose forces fled to the island in 1949 after losing a civil war with the communists.
China, which claims Taiwan as its own sovereign territory, has not so far announced any humanitarian aid supplies for Ukraine.
The head of a UN agency said on Monday that more than 500,000 people have fled Ukraine to neighbouring countries since the start of Russia’s invasion last week. EU officials have said the war could displace 7 million people.
