Taiwan to donate helicopters to Honduras

Taipei, March 19 (CNA) Taiwan will donate three helicopters to one of its diplomatic allies, Honduras, in Central America, a Taiwanese foreign affairs official said Thursday. "An official donation ceremony will be held in the coming days in Honduras," said Antonio Yeh (???), counselor of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Department of Latin American and Caribbean Affairs, at a regular news briefing. The three decommissioned, unarmed UH-1H utility helicopters have already been delivered, he added. They will be used to help Honduras fight crimes such as drug trafficking, Yeh told reporters. Taiwan has also donated decommissioned UH-1H helicopters to other allies such as Guatemala. Taiwan is currently taking delivery of 60 UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters from the United States to replace its UH-1H helicopters. (By Elaine Hou)
