TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taiwan and Panama will discuss how to deal with their future relations after the two
countries severed their bilateral century-long diplomatic ties earlier this week, a Taiwanese foreign affairs official said Thursday.
Panama announced its decision to switch diplomatic recognition from Taipei to Beijing Tuesday and Taiwan immediately responded that it was terminating all of its technical aid programs in Panama, following the severance of diplomatic ties.
Eleanor Wang (王珮玲), spokeswoman for Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said at a regular news briefing that Taiwan and Panama will have to discuss how to deal with their future relations.
The two countries will also have to discuss how to handle bilateral cooperation projects that have been terminated due to the ending of diplomatic ties, Wang told reporters. [FULL STORY]
