Who is next to cut ties with beleaguered Taiwan?

Thursday, June 15, 2017

Taiwan had grown so numb watching its powerful rival China pay off its diplomatic allies to switch sides that people in Taiwan cynically bet on which country is next to go now that Panama has fallen into Beijing’s fold.

One top bet is Nicaragua, where Daniel Ortega’s government gave President Tsai a warmer than expected welcome in January. But he broke relations with Taiwan for China in 1985 and Tsai’s visit to the country in January was oddly hard to plan, raising suspicion that Ortega was plotting another switch.
