Venezuelan visas for the members of a Taiwanese unofficial diplomatic delegation will not be renewed, reported Wednesday the website of a Taiwanese newspaper.

For its part, the Taiwanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs noted "unfriendly atmosphere" in Venezuela.

In addition, Taiwanese state oil company CPC Corp claimed that the Venezuelan government asked it to hand over its stake in two local deposits, AP quoted.

Taiwan has official diplomatic relations with 24 countries only. However, other nations, including Venezuela, allow for "trade offices." In this way, Taipei can elude China's provision as to only one of them should be acknowledged by diplomatic partners. Both countries split in 1949 in the aftermath of a civil war.

As part of its campaign to claim the island as the integral part of its territory, Beijing is exerting pressure on foreign governments for them not to give Taipei any sign of sovereignty.

US-Cuba Rapprochement


USA-Cuba: Everyone knew it (except me)

OPINION Now, it seems as though everyone knew that the United States and Cuba were patching things up. Everyone but me, and a few others who were also caught off guard.

Surprises that life brings

OPINION Christmas brings a surprise gift for the Latin American hardcore left: the devastating moral knockout of an unexpected betrayal of its tutors, paradigms, and sources of support and inspiration.

The truth of the lie

OPINION Two recent actions by the government of the United States are very important. First: the US Senate admitted and reported tortures carried out by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) during President's Bush administration; second: the United States resumed diplomatic relations with Cuba.
