Taipei, Jan. 11 (CNA) Nauru President Baron Divavesi Waqa on Friday voiced support for
Taiwan and said he opposes the “one China, two systems” formula devised by China to bring Taiwan under its control.
During a press conference in Taipei, Waqa, who is on a five-day state visit to Taiwan, said his island country in Micronesia has been a loyal friend and family of Taiwan, and “you fight for family.”
“And that is what Nauru will do and will continue to do, and especially in my term as president,” Waqa said.
Waqa was responding to a reporter’s question about what he thinks of President Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) rejection of Beijing’s proposal to adopt the “one China, two systems” model in Taiwan, and whether Nauru will stick by its ally Taiwan. [FULL STORY]
