Daniel Ortega was elected to a fifth term in November in a controversial election, while his main opponents were in prison.

“There is only one China in the world,” Nicaragua’s foreign minister said at a press conference on Thursday.

Through a statement read by Minister Denis Moncada, the government of Daniel Ortega announced its decision to cut long-standing diplomatic ties with Taiwan to ensure its loyalty to Beijing.

“The People’s Republic of China is the only legitimate government representing all of China, and Taiwan is an inalienable part of the entire Chinese territory,” the letter said.

He adds that Nicaragua “severed diplomatic relations with Taiwan as of today and stopped any official contact or relationship.”
