Honduras Establishes Diplomatic Ties with Beijing, Breaks with Taiwan

HeadlineMar 27, 2023

Honduras has formally cut ties with Taiwan, while establishing diplomatic relations with China. In a statement issued Sunday, Honduras’s Foreign Ministry called Taiwan an inalienable part of Chinese territory and said Beijing is the “sole legitimate government” there. Taiwan said it was closing its main embassy and a consulate in Honduras and is withdrawing its ambassador. The move leaves Taiwan with just 13 diplomatic partners, most of them in Central America, the Caribbean and the South Pacific.
