The president of Taiwan, Tsai Ing-wen, has today embarked on a ten-day visit to Central America, which will see her in Guatemala and Belize. "Through this visit, I will express my gratitude to diplomatic partners for their support for the island," said the president from Taoyuan International Airport, adding that the trip "wants to demonstrate Taipei's determination to strengthen exchanges with the region ”. According to the itinerary disclosed by the Taipei Foreign Ministry, Tsai Ing-wen will arrive tomorrow, March 30, in New York, where she will speak at an event hosted by the Hudson Institute think tank, which will award her the "global leadership award" . The Taiwanese president will be in Guatemala from April 1 to 3, where she will hold talks with President Alejandro Giammattei. During his stay in Belize, from 3 to 5 April, Tsai is instead scheduled to meet with Prime Minister John Briceno.

In both countries, he will also meet representatives of the Taiwanese community and of the island's technical missions. On her return journey to Taiwan, Tsai will make a brief stop in Los Angeles, where, according to press rumors, she could hold a brief interview with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy. However, the circumstance was not confirmed by the spokesman of the US National Security Council, John Kirby, who defined Tsai's visit "unofficial" and "private". The prospect of talks between the Taiwanese president and McCarthy has sparked strong protests from China, which has said it intends to respond with "resolute countermeasures".
