The love dance

The Solomon Islands’ government has voted to sever its longstanding ties with Taiwan and take up diplomatic relations with Beijing, which leaves Taiwan with 16 allies left.

Taiwan’s president Tsai accused China of engaging in “dollar diplomacy” in the region in order to undermine Taiwan.

Chair of the Foreign Relations Committee Hon. Peter Kenilorea Jr (FRC) says, “I am concerned because we are not marching to our own beat on this matter. We are in fact marching to China’s beat. We are being dictated by China already – even before we switch.”
