Honduras breaks diplomatic ties with Taiwan, opens relations with China

The Honduran Foreign Ministry announced Saturday that diplomatic relations with Taiwan have been severed and a commitment to "never again" have official ties or contact with the island.

The Honduran government said its decision to end the diplomatic relationship is because Taiwan is an "inalienable part of Chinese territory."

"The Government of the Republic of Honduras recognizes that there is only one China in the world and that the Government of the People's Republic of China is the only legitimate government representing all of China," according to a statement.

The announcement follows Taiwan's decision to withdraw its ambassador to Honduras, Chang Chun-Fei, on March 23, motivated by a recent visit by Honduran Foreign Minister Eduardo Enrique Reina to China.

 Chinese Foreign Minister Qin Gang and his Honduran counterpart Eduardo Enrique Reina signed a joint communique in Beijing on the establishment of diplomatic relations at the ambassadorial level.

"The governments of the two countries agreed to develop friendly relations based on the principles of mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity, mutual non-aggression, non-interference in each other's internal affairs, equality, mutual benefit and peaceful coexistence," the document says.
