Gambia: President Barrow express regrets over past Gambia-Taiwan relationships.

Gambian President Adama Barrow told Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday that his country’s previous ties with self-ruled Taiwan has been a “huge mistake”, and he thanked China for all the help it had given subsequently, China said.

China resumed ties with Gambia in 2016, after it ended formal relations with Taiwan, claimed by China as a wayward province with no right to diplomatic relations.



Two other African countries have since followed suit, São Tomé and Príncipe and Burkina Faso.

China has stepped up pressure on Taiwan’s remaining allies now down to just 17, most of the poor countries in the Pacific and Central America as it seeks to limit the democratic island’s international footprint.

“China has helped us improve communications, roads and transport conditions, things that in all the years gone past we wanted to do but were unable,” he added.
