The first quadrilateral talks between Taiwan, the US, Guatemala and Honduras took place on Tuesday in Guatemala during Minister of Foreign Affairs Joseph Wu’s (吳釗燮) visit to the nation’s Central American allies, Wu wrote on Twitter yesterday.
Their discussions focused on Taiwan and the US jointly promoting partnerships with Guatemala and Honduras in trade, investment, infrastructure and other areas, it said.
The talks set up a multilateral cooperation mechanism that is extraordinarily meaningful, it added.
The ministry is glad to work with the US to promote cooperation programs with the nation’s diplomatic allies, and to continue to boost the prosperity and development of Central America, the statement said.
A joint statement by US President Donald Trump and Paraguayan President Mario Abdo Benitez on Dec. 13 last year said that the IDFC would finance the construction of a medical center in Asuncion and offer technical support alongside Taiwan.
