TAIPEI (REUTERS) – Taiwan has asked its office in Washington to remind the United States not to cause “unnecessary speculation or misunderstanding” after the White House deleted a social media post on Covid-19 vaccine donations that included Taiwan’s flag.
The White House Covid-19 Response Team this week posted on Twitter an image giving details of US vaccine donations globally, including last month’s Moderna shots sent to Taiwan, and showed the island’s flag along with those of others getting vaccines.
Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen retweeted it, adding: “Thank you to the US for your generosity. Together, we will beat this pandemic.”
