After ditching Taiwan, China says Panama will get the help it needs

Monday, November 20, 2017

China will provide Panama with whatever help it needs after the Central American country ditched long-standing ties with self-ruled Taiwan in June, a senior Chinese diplomat said after talks between the two countries’ presidents.

Panama’s decision to end ties with Taiwan was a major victory for Beijing, as it lures away the dwindling number of countries that have formal relations with the island China claims as its own.
