Murillo, the wife of President Ortega, explained that Nicaraguans can stay up to 90 days in Taiwan, provided they have their valid passport, show their round-trip air ticket, and have no criminal record.

Nicaragua is one of the 21 countries that maintains diplomatic ties with Taiwan and not with China.

Taiwan is the best economic partner of Nicaragua in Asia, while China considers it (Taiwan) a rebel province.

In 2016 Nicaragua exported goods for US$29.87 million dollars to Taiwan. In the first quarter of 2017, Taiwan ranked fourth in the export destination countries of Nicaragua, at 4.4%, behind the United States, El Salvador and Venezuela.

In other diplomatic news, Nicaragua ratified friendship links with Cuba and established diplomatic relations with Kyrgyzstan.

Cuban ambassador to Nicaragua, Juan Carlos Hernandez, greeted President Daniel Ortega on the 38th anniversary of the Tactical Reintegration to Masaya, an event that resulted in the triumph of the Sandinista Revolution in July 1979, on behalf of the Cuban people. In turn, the Nicaraguan leader thanked the Caribbean nation for its support and held a brief exchange with the members of the diplomatic delegation.

In the text of the joint communique, on July 7 in New York, by Permanent Representative of the Kyrgyz Republic to the United Nations, Mirgul Moldoisaeva, and Permanent Representative of Nicaragua to the United Nations, Maria Rubiales de Chamorro, said the countries established diplomatic relations, guided by the principles and objectives of the UN Charter and international law, in particular, respect and strengthening of international peace and security, equality between states, respect for national sovereignty and territorial integrity of the state, independence, observing treaties and non-interference in the internal affairs of the states.
