Seminar on Taiwan-U.S.-Japan security dialogue set for Dec. 14

An annual seminar on security dialogue involving Taiwan, the United States, Japan and their Asia-Pacific partners will take place Wednesday in Taipei, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Tuesday.

The annual event is co-organized by the MOFA, the Taipei-based Prospect Foundation, the Washington-based Center for a New American Security and the Tokyo-based Institute for International Policy Studies, the ministry said in a statement.

The key themes of the discussion will be international cooperation on non-traditional security, the outlook for Asia-Pacific regional economic integration, and East Asia maritime security, according to the statement.

Continuing a tradition, the agenda will also include a three-party dialogue between lawmakers from Taiwan, the United States and Japan, the MOFA said.

Participants will include Taiwanese legislators Liu Shih-fang (劉世芳) and Chiang Chi-chen (江啟臣), Japanese parliamentarian Keisuke Suzuki, and Wendy Sherman, a former U.S. undersecretary of state for political affairs, according to the ministry.
