Saint Lucia has urged a return to peace and stability in the Taiwan straits.

On Tuesday, the Ministry of External Affairs, International Trade, Civil Aviation, and Diaspora Affairs issued a brief statement on the issue.

“Saint Lucia always firmly adheres to the principles that govern international law and order. Saint Lucia, therefore, supports the right of the people of the Republic of China (Taiwan) to self-determination and calls for the return of peace and stability in the Taiwan Straits,” the statement said.

It came against the backdrop of rising tensions between mainland China and Taiwan.

China regards Taiwan as part of its territory and has carried out military exercises around the island this month.

Beijing is furious over a recent visit to Taipei by United States House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

Five US lawmakers also visited Taiwan on Sunday and Monday.

But China has declared that Taiwan has no right to conduct foreign relations.

Angered over the Pelosi visit, Beijing launched ballistic missiles and deployed multiple aircraft and warships in recent days to simulate sea and air attacks.

And the Chinese military said it conducted combat alert patrols and military drills in the waters and airspace around Taiwan on Monday, a day after the arrival of the US congressional delegation to Taipei.

The military maneuvers have sparked concern that China could invade Taiwan.

  1. My ❤️I leave with you !
    With GOD apparently absent (invisible)
    the hope of a promise still remains.
    Ultimate goals remains the same ;to bless (all the peoples on earth),to remove the curse from creation and restore the original (relationship and makes it clear that his people remains true to him and follow his ways.

    Sadly,and inspite of GOD’S (repeated warnings and pleadings),they determined to go their own way, follow the false gods of the nations that surrounds them, which destroys the faith of his people and brings the Judgement ⚖️ of GOD down upon themselfs (themselves).

  2. To be honest a new world war have already started believe it or not St Lucian government now need to stop being so dependent on other countries and start growing their own to feed us when the will start.

  3. Yee hawww!!!! Likkle ti ka ka wat 🐀 st lucia urges BIG SUPER POWER RED DRAGON CHING CHONG CHINA 🇨🇳 to leave taiwan alone??? Yee hawww……things you thought that would have possibly never made news!
    In other news China says it will never make a mistake with taiwan just like what the russians did to UK-raine. Fimble and fumble and a mishandle of an invasion war that should have only taken Russia one month to EXECUTE! CHINA SEE 👀 CHINA LEARN!

    • Did Russia say their actions in Ukraine was only going to take a month or was that what the main stream media said. Ukraine is way bigger that Iraq, and it took the US more than a month to find Saddam. And Russia has been moving slow and steady on purpose

  4. The US knew exactly what is was doing when Nancy Pelosi flew in to Taiwan under the cover of night, after they were told not to. The US likes to start proxy wars, meddle with business that doesn’t concern them. And they like to use “democracy” to justify their actions. And all the countries they give aid to has to fall in line and support them or else they’ll face it’s wrath. Their time is running out, and when they fall it will be a hard one
