  • Description

    More than three thousand representatives from so-called "Captive Nations" attended a mass rally in Taipei this week. The rally was held during Taiwan's Captive Nations Week, which is allied to the Taiwan-hosted World Anti-Communist League.

    Taiwan's Vice-President, Mr. C.K. Yen, addressed the rally, reading a message form President Chiang Kai-shek pledging his country's support for the captive nations in regaining their freedom.

    Mr. Yen went on to say that under no circumstances would Taiwan change its fundamental national policy of anti-Communist. He added that although his country had suffered a series of diplomatic setbacks in recent years, these would not affect its Anti-Communist stand.

    Several speakers very to follow Mr. Yen. Among them was the American Ambassador to Taiwan, Mr. Walter McConaughy.
