Gardner Taiwan Legislation Unanimously Approved By Senate

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO), Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity, today announced the Senate unanimously approved his legislation that will require the United States Department of State to develop a strategy to include Taiwan as an observer in the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL). 

“Taiwan is our friend and ally and it is important that it has the opportunity to contribute to the global effort to track and prosecute criminals,” said Gardner. “It is essential that the United States support Taiwan, and this bill demonstrates our unwavering commitment to this longstanding and important U.S. ally. I urge the House of Representatives to quickly pass this bill and the President to sign it into law.”
