|San Jose (dpa) - Costa Rica's embassy in China will be one of its most important in the world, Foreign Minister Bruno Stagno said Wednesday after his country switched ties from Taiwan to China last month. |
Stagno said a location had already been chosen in Beijing and that an ambassador and diplomatic personnel would be announced soon.
Costa Rica broke ties with Taiwan after 63 years and established relations with China on June 1 - a decision Stagno said was an "act of realism of foreign policy that promotes a tighter bond with Asia and the world."
