By BBN Staff: Despite several countries severing ties with the Republic of China (Taiwan) in favor of the People’s Republic of China, countries within the Central American Integration System (SICA) have pledged their continued support.

SICA made the declaration during a regional meeting which started off in Guatemala yesterday, which is the preamble to a larger meeting to be held later this year.

“We have developed 100+ projects covering environmental protection, social integration, food security, tourism. Integration is a reality and we will continue to deepen our work with the Republic of China (Taiwan),” SICA posted on its official social media page.

Panama severed ties with Taiwan in favor of the PRC in 2017. In May 2018, the Dominican Republic severed ties with Taiwan in favor of mainland China, leaving Taiwan with only 19 diplomatic allies, 10
of which are SICA nations, making the group the largest block of allies Taiwan has left.

Belize has a long history of getting support from Taiwan as well as speaking up for Taiwan on the international stage. At the 73rd United Nations General Assembly, Minister of Foreign Affairs Wilfred
Elrington, pleaded with the UN to allow Taiwan to participate in the affairs and processes of the United Nations.
