Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu announced on Thursday that Taiwan will donate 60 million yen, equivalent to around $420,000, to assist in relief and reconstruction efforts following the magnitude 7.6 earthquake that struck central Japan.

Wu, as reported by Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK), emphasized that the state of emergency in Japan is also a state of emergency in Taiwan.

He expressed his hope that earthquake survivors can return to their normal lives as soon as possible.

Wu stated that Taiwan and Japan have been mutually supportive and have extended a helping hand to each other whenever needed, underscoring his country's solidarity with Japan during this challenging time.

Taiwanese authorities have informed citizens that they can make monetary donations at banks, post offices, and stores starting from tomorrow, Friday, until January 19.

They also indicated that they will coordinate with Japanese officials to determine the most suitable destination for the funds.

Taiwan's contribution reflects the strong bonds of friendship and support between the two nations in times of crisis, demonstrating international solidarity and cooperation in the face of natural disasters.
