St. Lucia Opens an Embassy in Taiwan

201506040023t0001CASTRIES, St. Lucia – The main opposition party is demanding answers surrounding “the mysteries” surrounding the opening of an embassy in Taiwan last week.

St. Lucia’s embassy in Taiwan, the Carib­bean country’s first in Asia, was opened last Tuesday in an effort to strengthen bilateral ties, the government said.

Taiwan and St. Lucia have maintained close cooperation in public health, education, infrastruc­ture and culture since the two coun­tries resumed diplomatic relations in 2007.

But the United Workers Party (UWP) said in a statement that the Dr. Kenny Anthony government had not seen it fit to provide the answer to several questions every St. Lucian needed.

“It is about time that all citizens of this country know who is the appointed Ambassador to the Republic of China on Taiwan. It is also about time that the citizens know what it will cost us annually for this new decision,” it said.

“Such important details and decisions are taken by this SLP [St. Lucia Labour Party] government and kept well away from the official Opposition in the Parliament of St. Lucia, and from the people of this country at a time when cries of shortages of basic of medical supplies are being reported among other things. On behalf of the people of St. Lucia, we demand answers!”

The UWP is not the only opposition party to ask questions about the embassy.
