Honduras has severed diplomatic ties with Taiwan, leaving Taiwan with only 13 allies, primarily small nations in the Pacific and Central America. This move is part of China's campaign to isolate Taiwan and push for unification. Honduras's decision was influenced by its debt issues, including $600 million owed to Taiwan, and a demand for $2.5 billion in aid. Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen, who will visit Guatemala and Belize, refuses to engage in 'dollar diplomacy' with China. Other countries have also cut ties with Taiwan since Tsai's 2016 presidency, often influenced by economic factors and China's diplomatic efforts.
