Honduras will establish relations with China orders Xiomara Castro

Honduras will establish relations with China – The President of Honduras, Xiomara Castro reported on Tuesday that Honduras will officially open relations with the People’s Republic of China, although it is not known if she is referring to diplomatic relations.

“I have instructed Foreign Minister Eduardo Reina to manage the opening of official relations with the People’s Republic of China, as a sign of my determination to comply with the Government Plan and expand the borders freely in concert with the nations of the world,” Castro said. .

What is not known is how diplomatic relations with China Taiwan will be, since a principle that Continental China maintains is to have relations with countries as long as they are not maintained with Taiwan.

In fact, last January the Chinese ambassador in Costa Rica, Tang Heng, referred to OPSA about the possibility of opening relations with Honduras.

“The one-China principle is a universally recognized norm in international relations and a universal consensus in the international community and forms the political basis of China’s relations with all countries,” he said.

“Honduras continues to maintain so-called diplomatic relations with the Taiwan region of China, which constitutes the biggest obstacle to substantial cooperation between China and Honduras. We hope that the Honduran side joins the historical trend and makes the right decision as soon as possible,” the diplomat added to this newspaper.

It remains to be seen Taiwan’s position in relation to the Honduran government’s announcement that both nations have maintained relations for 81 years.

Honduras and Taiwan

Honduras is one of the 14 countries with which Taiwan maintains diplomatic relations, which include Guatemala, Vatican City, Haiti, Paraguay, Eswatini, Tuvalu, Nauru, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Belize, Marshall Islands and Palau.

Ties between Tegucigalpa and Taipei date back to 1941, when the ROC government – Taiwan’s official name – was still headquartered on the Chinese mainland.

Four Latin American countries – Panama, El Salvador, the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua – broke relations with Taiwan in recent years in favor of the People’s Republic of China.

Taiwan has been considered a sovereign territory with its own government and political system under the name of the Republic of China since the end of the civil war between nationalists and communists in 1949, but Beijing maintains that it is a rebel province and insists that it return to what called common homeland.
