Taiwan’s President to Travel to Central America Next Month

TAIPEI – Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen will visit several diplomatic allies of the country in Central America and will also attend Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega’s swearing-in ceremony, the foreign ministry said on Tuesday.

Tsai will leave Taiwan on Jan. 7 and visit Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras during her nine-day trip, according to the ministry.

The president is also expected to stop over in the United States on her way to and back from Central America.

Following Tsai’s phone call to U.S. President-elect Donald Trump on Dec. 2, China had asked Washington not to allow Tsai to stop over in the U.S. on her way to Central America.

Latin America and the Caribbean is a stronghold of Taiwan’s foreign policy as it is home to 12 of its 22 diplomatic allies.

Beijing, which considers Taiwan as part of its territory, insists any country wishing to maintain diplomatic relations with China has to first break such relations with Taiwan.
