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.
