Long-stand­ing Honduras ties hailed by Pres­i­dent Ma

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Pres­i­dent Ma Ying-jeou ex­tolled Tues­day the long-stand­ing diplo­matic ties be­tween the Re­pub­lic of China and Honduras, prais­ing the Cen­tral Amer­i­can coun­try as a friend in­deed and en­vi­sion­ing broader ex­changes be­tween the two sides.

Thank­ing Honduras for speak­ing out for the R.O.C. on mul­ti­ple in­ter­na­tional oc­ca­sions, Ma noted dur­ing a meet­ing with vis­it­ing Honduran De­fense Min­is­ter Sa­muel Ar­mando Reyes Re­don that Honduras set up for­mal ties with the R.O.C. in 1941, at a time when the coun­try was still deep in the throes of the fight against Ja­panese ag­gres­sion.
