China Pictorial (English) - - News -

June 13, Beijing: Chi­nese For­eign Min­is­ter Wang Yi and Pana­ma­nian Vice Pres­i­dent and For­eign Min­is­ter Is­abel de Saint Malo (left) pose with their doc­u­ments af­ter sign­ing a joint com­mu­niqué on es­tab­lish­ing diplo­matic re­la­tions.

China and Panama an­nounced the es­tab­lish­ment of diplo­matic re­la­tions, as the Cen­tral Amer­i­can coun­try cut its “diplo­matic ties” with Tai­wan. Ac­cord­ing to the state­ment, the Pana­ma­nian govern­ment now ad­mits that there is only one China, that the govern­ment of the Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of China is the only le­git­i­mate govern­ment rep­re­sent­ing China, and that Tai­wan is an in­te­gral part of Chi­nese ter­ri­tory. “This is a his­toric mo­ment, and the China-panama re­la­tion­ship has opened a new chap­ter,” Wang said. Both sides will make full use of their com­ple­men­tary ad­van­tages and con­duct co­op­er­a­tion in var­i­ous ar­eas in­clud­ing trade, investment, maritime af­fairs, cul­ture and ed­u­ca­tion, as well as tourism.
