St. Lucia, Taiwan: Friends Again

Says French Caribbean site New Media [Fr]: “Taiwan, through the hand of its Foreign Affairs minister James Huang and his St. Lucian counterpart Rufus Bouquet, has officially signed Wednesday in Castries a treaty reestablishing diplomatic ties between the two countries. China has already stated it feels ‘offended’ by the document.”

  • one China

    nobody could splict Taiwan from China!

  • tom

    So, St. Lucia will surely regret for this choice.

  • match

    Taiwan has never been a part of PRC. It is a joke that China unilaterally claims Taiwan as a break-away province, and forces all countries that want to have diplomatic relationship with China to admit so.
