Taiwan President Tsai arrives in Nauru on second leg of overseas visit
5:02 pm GMT+12, 24/03/2019, Palau

Taiwan's President Tsai Ing-wen  flew to Nauru from Palau on Sunday to continue her eight-day visit to three diplomatic allies in the Pacific, which will also take her to the Marshall Islands.
 
Tsai was greeted by Republic of China Ambassador to Nauru Chow Chin-fa and Nauruan officials, including Education Minister Charmaine Scotty and Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Michael Aroi, at the Nauru airport.
 
During her stay  before she leaves for the Marshall Islands on March 26, Tsai will hold talks with President Baron Divavesi Waqa, address the parliament and witness the signing of a sea patrol cooperation accord between the two countries.
 
She will also meet with Nauru Speaker of Parliament Cyril Buraman at a luncheon, visit the Naoero Museum, and offer encouragement to the orthopedics team from Taiwan's Taichung Veterans General Hospital.
 
Tsai and Waqa will also jointly attend the opening ceremony of the Taiwan Agriculture and Livestock Education Center established by the Taiwan Technical Mission in Nauru.
 
This is Tsai's sixth official trip abroad and second one to the Pacific since taking office in May 2016, following a visit to the Marshall Islands, Solomon Islands and Tuvalu in October 2017.
