Factbox: And then there were 13: Taiwan's diplomatic allies
March 26 (Reuters) - Honduras has ended its decades-long relationship with Taiwan and said it only recognised China, leaving Taiwan with formal diplomatic relations with only 13 countries.
China views democratically governed Taiwan as part of its territory with no right to state-to-state ties, a position Taiwan's government strongly disputes.
Over the years, China has slowly whittled away at the number of countries that maintain formal diplomatic ties with Taiwan.
Following is a list of states that have diplomatic ties with Taiwan:
LATIN AMERICA AND CARIBBEAN
Saint Kitts and Nevis
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
