Pierre Reaffirms Saint Lucia’s Friendship To New Taiwan President


On Wednesday, Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre paid a courtesy visit to Taiwan’s new President, Lai Ching-te, during which he reaffirmed Saint Lucia’s friendship.

Pierre also congratulated the new Taiwanese leader on behalf of the government and the people of Saint Lucia.

“I look forward to strengthening diplomatic relations with the Government and the People of Taiwan,” the Saint Lucia Prime Minister wrote on Facebook.

Pierre attended the Inauguration Ceremony of the Taiwan President and Vice President on Monday.

The Office of the Prime Minister disclosed that the Taiwan Government paid the expenses for the trip by Pierre and his delegation.

 Saint Lucia and Taiwan established diplomatic relations in 1984.

However, the ties broke in 1997 when Castries switched recognition from Taipei to Beijing.

 In April 2007, Taiwan and Saint Lucia reestablished diplomatic relations and China consequently severed its ties with the latter.
