China commends Nicaragua for its recognition of the ‘One China Principle’



Beijing says Nicaragua’s diplomatic switch from Taiwan to China is a result of “political policymaking, not bargaining chips”, asserting that no promises of financial aid were linked to the diplomatic allegiance. China has spent decades encouraging Taiwan’s dwindling diplomatic allies to switch sides, including three others in Latin America in recent years – Panama, El Salvador and the Dominican Republic. Nicaragua’s decision, leaves the self-ruling island of Taiwan with just 14 diplomatic allies.
