China lauds Nicaragua for breaking ties with Taiwan in favour of Beijing

Beijing: China praised Nicaragua for cutting ties with Taiwan and resuming diplomatic relations with Beijing, calling it "the right move."

According to reports, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Beijing appreciates the decision. "Nicaragua's government recognises and commits to the one-China principle, severing so-called "diplomatic contacts" with Taiwan, resuming diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China, and promising not to create any formal connections or exchanges with Taiwan. This is the correct decision, which is in line with worldwide trends and has widespread support. This is a choice that China greatly respects "In a statement, the Chinese government said.

Nicaraguan Foreign Minister Denis Moncada said in a televised statement on Thursday that his country's administration understands that there is only one China in the world. With Nicaragua's statement, there are just about a dozen nations in the world that have formal diplomatic relations with Taiwan, including Honduras and Guatemala, both in Central America.

Despite the fact that Taiwan and China have been governed separately for over 70 years, Beijing considers the democratic island of 24 million people to be part of its territory and has repeatedly stated its desire for "reunification," despite the fact that Taiwan has never been ruled by the Chinese Communist Party.

Taiwan's foreign ministry expressed "sad and regret" over the news in a statement, saying it will sever diplomatic relations with Nicaragua, cease bilateral cooperation, and evacuate workers.
