Taipei, June 21 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) on Friday expressed the hope that Guatemalan Ambassador to Taiwan Olga Maria Aguja Zuniga will continue to offer Taiwan her strongest support and work to improve bilateral ties despite her planned departure next week.

Aguja is set to return home on June 24 for her new position as a consultant to Guatemala's foreign ministry after serving as her country's ambassador to Taiwan for nearly four years.

Aguja assumed the ambassadorship in August 2015, when Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) of the Kuominting (KMT) was president.

"For more than three years, Taiwan and Guatemala have seen extremely close interactions. Not only did I pay a state visit to Guatemala, Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales also led a delegation to visit Taiwan," Tsai said when meeting with Aguja at the Presidential Office in Taipei.
