TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Taiwan’s foreign ministry (MOFA) denied Tuesday that the government has plans to purchase bonds issued by the Nicaraguan government, calling a related news report disinformation.
Alexander Yui (俞大㵢), director-general of the ministry’s Department of Latin American and Caribbean Affairs, called the report published by a Nicaraguan news company disinformation at a press briefing on Tuesday, as reported by Central News Agency.
The report, published in October, suggested that the Taiwanese government has plans to purchase Financial Stability Bonds worth US$280 million (NT$8.6 billion) from the Nicaraguan government to help stabilize the country’s economy.
