Taiwan Ambassador To Honduras Recalled

TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwan’s ambassador to Honduras arrived home Saturday (March 25) after being recalled in a protest against the Central American ally sending its foreign minister to China ahead of an expected switch in diplomatic recognition.

When Ambassador Vivia Chang (張俊菲) arrived at Taoyuan International Airport, she told reporters Taiwan had shown its utmost goodwill, the Liberty Times reported. For comments on whether Honduras was about to break off diplomatic relations after more than 80 years, she referred to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Fears about a break started March 14 when President Xiomara Castro tweeted she had told Foreign Minister Eduardo Enrique Reina to start talks with China on opening official relations. Before winning the presidential election last year, she had hinted at a break with Taipei. MORE
