U.S. warns Honduras that China makes many unfulfilled promises

(Reuters) – The U.S. State Department on Wednesday said China makes many promises that are unfulfilled after Honduras announced it would seek official relations with Beijing and cut them with Taiwan.

“The Honduran Government should be aware that the PRC (People’s Republic of China) makes many promises that are unfulfilled,” a State Department spokesperson said.

“We will continue to monitor next steps closely.”
