China will aim to snatch regional allies

Monday, December 26, 2016


China will continue to explore the possibility of luring away nations that maintain diplomatic ties with Taiwan in the wake of Sao Tome and Principe severing its ties with Taipei, two China experts said.

Former American Institute in Taiwan director Douglas Paal said that before a planned visit next month by President Tsai Ing-wen to four of the nation’s allies in Central America — Honduras, Nicaragua, Guatemala and El Salvador — China could be exploring the possibility of luring them away, either now or during her visit.
