Taiwan on Wednesday experienced the earthquake of the highest intensity in the last 25 years, killing at least nine people and injuring more than 900.

Modi said in a post on ‘X’, “Deeply saddened by the loss of lives due to earthquake in Taiwan today. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the bereaved families and we wish a speedy recovery to the injured. “We stand in solidarity with the people of Taiwan as they cope with the aftermath of the earthquake,” he said.

Taiwan’s Vice President Lai Ching-te also thanked Modi for the ‘heart-touching’ message. He said, “Thank you Prime Minister Narendra Modi for your heart-touching message. Your support and solidarity is a source of strength for the people of Taiwan during this difficult time.

The India Taipei Association has also expressed its condolences to the earthquake victims. China considers Taiwan its breakaway province and is pressuring it to join the mainland. China says that if necessary, it can also use force to achieve this goal.

However, Taiwan considers itself completely separate from China. There is no formal diplomatic relations between India and Taiwan, but bilateral trade relations between the two have been growing rapidly in the last few years.

India established the ‘India Taipei Association’ (ITA) in Taipei in 1995 with the objective of promoting dialogue between the two sides and facilitating trade, tourism and cultural exchanges. India-Taipei Association has been authorized to provide all consular and passport services. In the same year, Taiwan also established the Taipei Economic and Cultural Center in Delhi.
