Nicaragua Promises Taiwan Support for Its Entry into International Entities

MANAGUA – Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega promised his Taiwanese counterpart, Tsai Ing-wen, to support the Asian country’s entry into international entities within the United Nations, the Nicaraguan government announced Tuesday.

The promise was made during a meeting between Ortega and Tsai held on Monday, the government in Managua said in an official statement.

“We remain committed to that battle ... so that the people of Taiwan may continue to incorporate themselves into international entities affiliated with the United Nations,” Ortega told Tsai, according to the report.

Although Nicaragua and 20 other countries recognize the independence of Taiwan, China considers the island to be a rebel province and the UN does not recognize it as a sovereign state.

The Taiwanese leader thanked Ortega for his gesture and reiterated her interest in strengthening ties with Nicaragua.

“We want to strengthen these ... ties even more ... in a very substantial way to support economic development programs, programs to open up greater job opportunities with an eye toward being able to improve the lives of our peoples,” said Tsai, according to the statement.

The Taiwanese president is in Nicaragua as part of a Central American tour including El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.

Tsai will also attend Ortega’s inauguration as president after he was reelected to a fourth term, his third consecutive mandate, this time with his wife, Rosario Murillo, as his running mate.
