TAIPEI, March 22 —Honduras demanded US$2.5 billion (RM11.1 billion) in aid from Taiwan the day before Honduran President Xiomara Castro tweeted her government would seek to open relations with China, a source familiar with the situation told Reuters today.

The source was confirming a report by Taiwan’s official Central News Agency.

Honduras is one of only 14 countries to maintain formal diplomatic ties with Chinese-claimed Taiwan. — Reuters
