Taiwanese Foreign Minister to Visit Belize

Joseph Wu

Taiwan’s Foreign Minister, Joseph Wu, is expected in Belize on an overnight visit next week. According to a report in the official press in Taiwan, Wu will be heading here on the sixteenth and seventeenth of July following a visit to El Salvador. Support for Taiwan has been dwindling in this region and in recent times, both Panama and the Dominican Republic have broken relations and established with China. So far Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua in Central America retain relations with Taiwan, among a shrinking group of eighteen countries.  Wu, on behalf of President Tsai Ing-wen, will be transmitting messages of friendship and bilateral cooperation to the governments of the two countries. He is expected to meet with Prime Minister Dean Barrow and visit the Taiwanese embassy here.
