State visit by Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen

Nauru parliament passes resolution to reject 'one China' principle

Nauru President Baron Divavesi Waqa read the resolution, stating that members of the parliament rejected the "one China principle" and "one country, two systems" framework and recognized Taiwan as a sovereign and independent nation. Waqa is the first foreign head of state to have publicly expressed opposition in parliament to China's "one country, two systems" framework.

Tsai flew to Nauru from Palau on Sunday to continue her eight-day visit to three of Taiwan's diplomatic allies in the Pacific, including the Marshall Islands.
