By Aaron Humes: An official communication of the office of Honduras’ Secretary of State for Foreign Relations and International Cooperation, approved by President Xiomara Castro, has confirmed to the Republic of China (Taiwan) the immediate decision to break diplomatic relations between the countries.
The Honduran government recognizes the Government of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) as the one true and legitimate representative of the Chinese state, which Beijing argues includes Taiwan, and that there is only “one China in the world.”
As demanded by Beijing of countries that it establishes relationships with, Honduras is “committing itself not to have any official relationship or contact with Taiwan again.”
Honduras has officially denied asking for funds from the PRC as part of its decision to complete the break with Taiwan.
Its decision leaves only Belize and Guatemala as allies of Taiwan in the Central American region, with Belize’s House of Representatives just passing a motion in support of democratic Taiwan as representative of the Chinese state after the Budget Debate on Friday. President of Taiwan Tsai Ing-wen is due to visit both Guatemala and Belize in the coming weeks.
