During the three day visit, Nov. 27 to Nov. 30, at the invitation of the Taiwan Government, Moncada will also meet with Taiwan’s President, Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Joseph Wu (吳釗燮).

Moncada is accompanied by Youth Minister Bosco Martín Castillo-Cruz.

Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs characterized the Nicaragua-Taiwan relationship as very friendly, and noted the long-term cooperation in the areas of agriculture, education, culture, healthcare, and sports, in a statement.

Nicaragua, a diplomatic ally of Taiwan, is an active supporter of greater Taiwan international participation, and has advocated for Taiwan’s participation in the United Nations, the World Health Assembly, the International Civil Aviation Organization, and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Over the past two years, Taiwan has lost a series of allies such as Panama, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador and Sao Tome and Principe, who have all broken ties with Taiwan in favor of China.

China, under its “One China” policy, considers Taiwan a breakaway province and does not recognize the island’s independence, meaning countries intent on enjoying diplomatic relations with China must forego ties with Taiwan.
