suffered some setbacks due to China’s suppression, it still has “substantial” relations with many countries and this will be a major focus of its foreign relations.

In an interview with the Japanese newspaper the Nihon Keizai Shinbun, Lin said there have been some problems with communication across the Taiwan Strait, which has affected relations between Taiwan and China.

With regard to Panama, he said China exerted its economic power to undermine Panama’s diplomatic relations with Taiwan.

If China continues along that path, the formal relations between Taiwan and its remaining diplomatic allies would be at risk, Lin said, according to the full text of the interview that was posted Saturday on the Cabinet’s website.    [FULL  STORY]
