GUATEMALA CITY — President Tsai Ing-wen and her Guatemalan counterpart, Jimmy Morales,
reaffirmed their commitment to relations and cooperation between the two countries Wednesday, with Tsai saying that Taiwan will continue to support a Guatemalan highway expansion project, a proposal put forward by Morales.
Tsai received a military salute hosted by Morales at the National Palace of Culture shortly after she arrived in Guatemala earlier in the day.
At the ceremony, Morales extended his warmest welcome to Tsai, who is visiting the country as Taiwan’s president for the first time. He also reaffirmed the two countries’ commitment to strengthening their friendship and maintaining bilateral cooperation.
Noting their long-standing cooperation, he said that the people of Guatemala have benefited from bilateral cooperation in public health, infrastructure, agriculture and education. [FULL STORY]
