Panama and Taiwan insist no harm done to relations by meeting with opposition leader

Friday, March 16, 2012

Bilateral relations between Taiwan and Panama have not changed, despite rumors that Panamanian government officials were upset with Taiwan over a meeting with a politician from the opposition party.

Reports claiming that Taiwan-Panama relations have been downgraded or are on the brink of collapse are baseless, said Wu Jin-mu, director of the ministry's Department of Central and South American Affairs.

Panama became dissatisfied with Taiwan in January, when Foreign Minister Timothy Yang met with the Vice President of Panama, who is a
member of the opposition party.
