Minister of Foreign Affairs Jaushieh Joseph Wu conducted a video call with Ralph Gonsalves, prime minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, in which he lauded the two allies’ deep bond and vowed to continue deepening bilateral links.
The minister made the remarks Jan. 15 during his six-day visit to Guatemala as President Tsai Ing-wen’s special envoy to the inauguration of President Bernardo Arevalo and Vice President Karin Herrera in Guatemala City.
According to the MOFA, Gonsalves congratulated Taiwan on its smooth presidential and legislative elections and President-elect Lai Ching-te on his victory. The prime minister then expressed his hope of leading a delegation to Taiwan for the inauguration ceremony in May.
As for Nauru’s recent announcement on terminating diplomatic relations with Taiwan, Gonsalves condemned the move and emphasized that Saint Vincent and the Grenadines is one of Taiwan’s most faithful partners and will staunchly safeguard official ties. He added that the country looks forward to collaborating with Taiwan’s new administration.
In response, Wu thanked Gonsalves on behalf of the government and invited the prime minister to visit Taiwan to attend the inauguration. The minister concluded by expressing his gratitude to the Caribbean ally for its genuine friendship and conveyed Taiwan’s willingness to continue strengthening cooperation for the well-being and prosperity of the people on both sides.
