Thursday, 14 November 2013 21:40(JollofNews) – The Government of the Gambia has announced it is cutting diplomatic ties with the Republic of Taiwan.
No reason was given by the government of Yahya Jammeh.
The Gambia is one of the few African countries to have diplomatic ties with Taiwan and has in return received millions of dollars in aid from successive Taiwanese governments.
Taiwan has also pumped millions of dollars into the Gambia's agricultural sector. It has also offered scholarships to hundreds of Gambian students to study in its universities.
During his visit to Taipei last year, Mr Jammeh described Taiwan as an important strategic partner that has helped the Gambia to grow into a stronger nation.
He reaffirmed his government’s continuous support to Taiwan in its drive to secure expanded participation for major international organisations.
