Haiti: China v. Taiwan Diplomatic Brawl

Taiwan's prime minister Su Tseng-Chang will not be attending President-elect Rene Preval's inauguration because of pressures from China, reports (FR) Radio Kiskeya. “Beijing formally urged [the Haitian government] to cancel the Taiwanese prime minister's visit, threatening to use its Security Council veto power next August against the renewal of MINUSTAH [UN Mission to Haiti],” reports the Haitian newsfeed. As a result, the Taiwanese prime minister accused China of thwarting Taiwan's international relations efforts.
