Panama cuts diplomatic ties with Taiwan in favour of China

Panama has cut its long-standing diplomatic ties with Taiwan, establishing relations with China instead. Chinese ships are the second biggest customer in the Panama canal.

But Taiwan’s foreign minister is now accusing China of engaging in what he calls a diplomatic money game.

Taiwan considers itself an independent nation but Beijing regards it as part its territory.

Al Jazeera's Adrian Brown reports from Beijing.
