Taipei, Dec. 15 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said on Thursday that Taiwan will continue to deepen relations with the United States, Japan and regional partners as it works to promote "across-the-board" cooperation.

President Tsai said Taiwan "firmly upholds peace" and has both the will and ability to make a positive contribution to the international community, promote regional peace, stability and world prosperity along with the United States, Japan and other regional partners.

Tsai made the remarks when receiving foreign participants from the Taiwan-U.S-Japan Trilateral Security Dialogue Conference, an annual event co-organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Taipei-based Prospect Foundation, Washington-based Center for a New American Security and Tokyo-based Institute for International Policy Studies.

The key themes discussed were international cooperation on non-traditional security, the outlook for economic integration in the Asia-Pacific region and maritime security in East Asia.

Participants included Japanese parliamentarian Keisuke Suzuki and Wendy Sherman, a former U.S. undersecretary of state for political affairs.
