Santiago Pe帽a, the President-elect of Paraguay, who will assume the highest office in the country from next August, traveled to Taipei to meet with Tsai Ing-wen, the current President of Taiwan.

Pe帽a has assured that Paraguay’s relationship with Taiwan is important and will not change under his new government. On the contrary, the incoming President hopes that the bond between the two nations can be strengthened. Currently, Paraguay is the only country in South America that recognizes the sovereignty of the Asian island, making it a crucial connection for Taiwan with the region. As part of his electoral campaign, Pe帽a pledged that over the next five years, the country will work to solidify its ties with Taipei, which reassured the island’s government and dispelled fears of losing a strategic ally. On July 12th, as part of the visit’s agenda, they jointly celebrated the 66th anniversary of the beginning of diplomatic relations between both countries.
