Taiwan relations unchanged despite Chinese pressure: Palau president

The island duo share values and principles, Tommy Remengesau says

Palau President Tommy Remengesau Jr. says the island nation will under no circumstances cut ties with Taiwan on his watch.

TOKYO -- Palau will not bow to Chinese pressure to cut off Taiwan, President Tommy Remengesau Jr. told Nikkei, saying the Pacific Island nation would look to such countries as Japan for fresh sources of economic support.

The president granted an interview here on Thursday. As one of the 19 countries that still have diplomatic relations with the government in Taipei, Palau lacks formal relations with the mainland Chinese government.
