Sumio Tarui, representative of the association's Taipei Office, offered his support in a letter sent Monday to Lee Chia-chin, chairman of Taiwan's Association of East Asian Relations, which handles ties with Japan in the absence of diplomatic relations.
Tarui hoped that “those affected by the storm can return to their normal lives soon,” said the Interchange Association, which represents Japanese interests in Taiwan.
Typhoon Usagi brought heavy rain and strong winds to Taiwan from Sept. 19 to 22, especially to the southern and eastern parts of the country. Twelve people were injured because of the storm, according to the latest official statistics.
