Taiwan leader Ma Ying-jeou in visit in Haiti

Ma Ying-jeou, President of the Republic of China, still considered by most of the world as beholden to Mainland China, planned his trip in the western hemisphere around a visit to Paraguay. This visit was for the witnessing of the inauguration of Horacio Cartes, Paraguay's President-elect. It is a strategic move as well as a diplomatic and symbolic gesture, as Taiwan depends on Paraguay, the only country in the South of America that recognizes its sovereignty.
