Nicaraguan Foreign Minister Visits Taiwan to Strengthen Ties

TAIPEI – The foreign minister of Nicaragua was visiting Taiwan to meet senior officials and reinforce bilateral ties, the island’s foreign ministry said in a statement Wednesday.

Denis Ronaldo Moncada-Colindres met with Taiwan’s Vice President Chen Chien-jen and discussed matters related to development of bilateral relations.

Moncada was scheduled to meet with President Tsai Ing-wen and his Taiwanese counterpart, Joseph Wu, as well as visit the Environmental Protection Administration, International Cooperation and Development Fund, National Space Organization, Taichung World Flora Exposition, and Taipei Tea Promotion Center.

Moncada is accompanied by Nicaragua Youth Minister Bosco Martin Castillo-Cruz on his visit, which began on Nov. 27 and will conclude on Nov. 30.

The Taiwanese foreign ministry, in a statement, described its ties with Nicaragua – one of only 17 diplomatic allies – as friendly, and underlined long term cooperation in areas such as agriculture, education, culture, health and sports.

Over the past two years, Taiwan has lost a series of allies such as Panama, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador and Sao Tome and Principe, who have all broken ties with Taipei in favor of Beijing.

Under its “One China” policy, Beijing considers Taiwan a breakaway province and does not recognize the island’s independence, meaning countries intent on enjoying diplomatic relations with China must forego ties with Taipei.
