The Chinese Embassy in Peru has said that the 20 Taiwan tourists stranded in torrential rains and mudslides in Peru have all been moved to safe areas.

Since the tourists were trapped Tuesday in Machu Picchu, the World Heritage site in eastern Peru's Andes mountains, the Chinese Embassy has attached great importance to the issue by repeatedly communicating and coordinating with Peruvian authorities and urged them to intensify rescue efforts.

The Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Strait has informed Taiwan's Straits Exchange Foundation of related developments.

Staff workers of the Chinese Embassy said as the compatriots on both sides of the Taiwan Straits are from one big family, it is their duty and obligation to help Taiwan compatriots solve problems they have met and guarantee their safety abroad.
