Honduras 'To Keep Taiwan Relations'

Honduras 'To Keep Taiwan Relations'

Andrew H. Sweet

Gerardo Torres, LIBRE's secretary of international relations and a member of Castro's transition team, said that her government was not about to sever ties with Taipei.

"The new government will maintain relations with Taiwan," he said. "President-elect Xiomara Castro has been clear, these ties will be maintained. Nobody in the party wants to enter government distancing ourselves from the United States."

Nevertheless, another of the transition team members, Rodolfo Pastor, kept open the possibility that Honduras would recognize China, calling it a "new superpower" and saying that the Central American country was studying the matter.

Pastor said that Castro wanted to diversify Honduras' international relations while emphasizing that there would be "no imminent change" in the relationship with Taiwan as there had been in Nicaragua.
