President of Taiwan Arrives in Nicaragua to Attend Ortega’s Inauguration

MANAGUA – Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen arrived on Monday in Nicaragua, where she is due to attend the inauguration of Daniel Ortega Tuesday for a new term as the president of the Central American country.

The Taiwanese president was received at the Augusto C. Sandino International Airport by the deputy foreign minister of Nicaragua, Denis Moncada.

“It is a great honor for me to be able to attend the ceremony of President Daniel Ortega and Vice-President Rosario Murillo,” the Taiwanese leader said on her arrival in Nicaragua.

After addressing Ortega as an “old friend of Taiwan,” Tsai said she expects to increase bilateral cooperation and exchange, and meet with Nicaragua’s presidential couple to talk about issues of common interest and strengthen the ties between both nations.

She later visited a convention center where she was received by the Taiwanese community in Nicaragua.

Tsai and the president of El Salvador, Salvador Sanchez Ceren, are the only heads of state whose presence at the ceremony on Tuesday is confirmed.

Her visit to Nicaragua is one of her stops apart from Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

The Central American countries, except Costa Rica, are five out of 21 nations worldwide who recognize Taiwan’s status as a country, which China regards as a rebel province.

Ortega will begin on Tuesday a new five-year term – his fourth and third consecutive, this time with his wife, Rosario Murillo, as vice president.

The inauguration ceremony will take place in Plaza de la Revolucion, located in the historical center of Managua and where the Sandinistas celebrated on July 19, 1979 the overthrow of the Somoza dynasty, which ruled Nicaragua for 42 years.
