By BBN Staff: President Tsai Ing-wen of the Republic of China (Taiwan) is in Belize for an official visit from August 16 to 18.
The Belize City Council routinely cooperates with the Taiwan Embassy on social projects that benefit the city.
However, Breaking Belize News has confirmed that Belize City’s Mayor, Bernard Wagner was excluded for all events by the Foreign Affairs Ministry.
According to reports, this is despite the fact that President Tsai was hosted at a hotel in close proximity to City Hall.
The Taiwanese delegation is scheduled to leave Belize today.
Taiwan and Belize established diplomatic ties in October 1989.
Belize has remained Taiwan’s staunch ally in its bid for participation in U.N. agencies like the International Civil Aviation Organization, World Health Organization and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Likewise, Taiwan is Belize’s loyal and trustworthy ally.
Taiwan has been working and will continue to work with Belize hand in hand to achieve mutual interests for its people and government.
