Tsai meets in New York with permanent representatives to UN of Taiwan Allies for first time in history

Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen made history on Thursday (July 11) by being the first Taiwanese president to meet with permanent representatives to the United Nations of the country’s diplomatic allies for the first time in New York and the first time at Taiwan’s de facto embassy there.

Tsai on Thursday began a 12-day-11-night tour to visit Caribbean diplomatic allies titled ‘Tour for Freedom, Democracy and Sustainability,’ which will include visits with Haiti, Saint Kitts and Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and St. Lucia. Tsai is currently transiting through New York and will pass through Denver on the way back to Taiwan.

On the first day of her transit through New York, Tsai held a welcome reception for the permanent representatives to the United Nations of Taiwan’s diplomatic allies on Thursday, reported CNA. This marks the first time that the President of Taiwan has met with the permanent representatives to the United Nations of Taiwan’s diplomatic allies in New York.
