On the 15th of this month, Honduran President Xiomara Castro publicly announced that his foreign minister was committed to "severing diplomatic relations" with Taiwan and establishing diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China, after which the United States expressed "strong opposition", but it was powerless to stop it, even extreme pressure could not reverse the determination of the Honduran government to establish diplomatic relations with China and reshape its diplomatic line with China.

10 days later, on March 26, Beijing time, local time on March 25, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Honduras issued a statement officially announcing the severance of "diplomatic relations" with Taiwan. State Councilor and Foreign Minister Qin Gang held talks with Honduran Foreign Minister Reina in Beijing and signed the Joint Communiqué between the People's Republic of China and the Republic of Honduras on the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations.

Taiwan's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Tsai Ing-wen administration has lost nine so-called "countries with diplomatic relations" since coming to power, so let's take a look at the timeline from the following picture from the China News Service.

At present, there are only 13 so-called "countries with diplomatic relations" left by the Taiwan authorities, namely Nauru, Palau, Tuvalu, the Marshall Islands, Belize, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Guatemala, Haiti, Paraguay, Saint Lucia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Eswatini, and the Vatican. There may be many friends who have not only never heard their names, but give you a map of the world, it is estimated that you will not find it.

So today, let's learn geography together with Wanwan. The 13 countries are:

If some countries are not marked and the map is not enlarged, it is estimated that you may not find it. The total area of the "13 taipo" is about 580,000 square kilometers, and some of the island countries have large territorial waters and exclusive economic zones; The total population is about 38.25 million; The total GDP is about $129.7 billion.

In comparison, Hunan Province has a total area of 211,800 square kilometers, a permanent population of 66.04 million by the end of 2022, and a GDP of 4,867.037 billion yuan, or US$708.654 billion, in 2022. The economy of Hunan Province ranks ninth in the country.


How to say it? The total GDP of these thirteen countries is only second to Gansu Province, which ranks 27th in terms of our country, and Gansu's GDP is 1.12016 billion yuan.

Of course, diplomacy is no small matter, and we naturally welcome every true friend. At present, the Tsai Ing-wen authorities, who are unchangeable and servile, must have been crying bitterly and stomped their feet in a hurry, but they had no choice but to let the flowers fall, and the flowers floated by themselves.

Paraguay is also holding elections next month, and the country's opposition leader, Allegre, has said he will immediately "sever diplomatic relations" with Taiwan. Can we continue to look forward to another good show?
