President Tsai Ing-wen (???) arrived in Honduras Sunday on the first leg of her Central America trip, which will also take her to Nicaragua, Guatemala and El Salvador.

Tsai received a red-carpet welcome at the airport, where she was greeted by Honduran Vice President Ricardo Alvarez Arias.

Tsai said she was very honored to visit Honduras at the invitation of President Juan Orlando Hernandez and extend her most cordial regards to the government and people of Honduras.

During this visit, Tsai said she will discuss bilateral issues with Hernandez and visit major cooperation projects between the two countries.

The president expressed confidence that relations between Taiwan and Honduras will continue to deepen, based on their existing foundation with the bilateral partnership growing closer and stronger.
