Haitian President Travels to Taiwan to Strengthen Ties

PORT-AU-PRINCE – Haitian President Jovenel Moise traveled to Taiwan on Saturday for a six-day official visit aimed at boosting existing ties between the two countries.

In brief remarks before he left Haiti, Moise said his trip would strengthen ties with Taiwan, which has lost several allies – the latest being Burkina Faso – in recent months to China.

The Haitian government had reiterated its ties with Taiwan three weeks ago, shortly after neighboring Dominican Republic cut off ties with Taiwan in favor of China.

“We know that currently, China is a heavyweight in the world. Each country goes in one direction or other, but at the moment, it is with Taiwan that Haiti has diplomatic relations,” Haitian Minister of Communication Guyler C. Delva had said then.

Taiwan now has only 18 diplomatic allies around the world, 10 of which are located in Latin America and the Caribbean (Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Haiti, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Lucia, and Paraguay).

Another six of its allies are in Oceania (Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, the republics of Kiribati, Nauru, Paulu and the Marshall Island) while there now remains only one ally in Africa (Swaziland) and one in Europe (Vatican City).
