This comes as a surprise since it was the administration of Dr Kenny Anthony which severed relations with Taiwan in 1997 and opened diplomatic relations with China.
The farce that the Republic of China, better known as Taiwan, is the legitimate government of China has been maintained by a small and declining number of countries since the beginning of the People’s Republic of China in 1949. Taiwan has been able to maintain this ludicrous situation by spending millions to buy the diplomatic allegiance of poor small countries desperately in need of financial assistance. The handful of countries who recognised Taiwan has never changed their commitment. Others less encumbered by principles have opportunistically sold their allegiance to the highest bidder and have switched between Taiwan and China.
