Nicaragua Ends Relations with Taiwan to Appease China

Objectivity 3.7 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.4

Nicaragua’s government has officially broken diplomatic relations with Taiwan, declaring “there is only one China in the world.” Nicaragua’s Foreign Minister said, “the People’s Republic of China is the only legitimate government representing all of China and Taiwan is an undoubted part of the Chinese territory.” Nicaragua might not be the last nation to cut ties with Taiwan as China refuses to maintain diplomatic ties with any country that recognizes the Island.
