Honduras ends decadeslong Taiwan ties as Taipei decries monetary demands

Honduras ended its decadeslong relationship with Taiwan and said it only recognized China, as Taiwan’s foreign minister accused the Central American country of demanding exorbitant amounts of money and being lured by Beijing.

The ending of ties with Taiwan had been long expected after the Honduran foreign minister traveled to China last week to open relations and President Xiomara Castro said her government would start ties with Beijing.

In a brief statement late on Saturday announcing the severing of ties, the Honduran Foreign Ministry said it recognized the People’s Republic of China as the only legitimate government that represents all of China and that Taiwan is an “inseparable part of Chinese territory.”
