By BBN Staff: During his two-day visit to Belize, Foreign Minister of the Republic of China Taiwan, Dr. David Tawei Lee, said that Belize has reaffirmed its commitment to his country.

Lee wrapped up his two-day visit on Friday, saying that he was pleased with his visit overall, and with Belize’s pledge to remain allies with Taiwan, which is running low on friendly nations.

” I was assured by the Prime Minister and the Foreign Minister over the past 2 days that we will continue to work together for the betterment of the Belizean people,” Lee said.

During his visit, Lee signed a memorandum of understanding with the Government of Belize, for $60 million worth of loans and grants over the next four years.

The move is another in a series of moves by Taiwan to solidify ties with the friendly nations it has left after Panama severed ties in favor of the People’s Republic of China last month.

Taiwan also released visa restrictions for Belize and nine other nations last month.
