Nicaragua cuts diplomatic ties with Taiwan to align with Beijing

The Foreign Ministry of Nicaragua announced on Thursday that Nicaragua is breaking diplomatic relations with Taiwan.

The Foreign Ministry said in an announcement released in Managua, “The Government of the Republic of Nicaragua declares that it recognizes that in the world there is only one single China.

“The People’s Republic of China is the only legitimate government that represents all of China and Taiwan is an inalienable part of the Chinese territory.

“The Government of the Republic of Nicaragua today breaks diplomatic relations with Taiwan and ceases to have any contact or official relationship,” the announcement said.

Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that it deeply regretted the decision of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega to disregard the friendship of the Taiwanese people.

Taiwan also said that it was breaking off relations with Nicaragua, although the decision is widely seen as a unilateral move by Nicaragua.
