Taiwan Was on Wang Yi’s Mind When He Reached Out to Three African Foreign Ministers

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi spoke with three of his African counterparts via three separate phone calls this week. The Foreign Minister spoke with Nigeria’s Geoffrey Onyeama, Kenya’s Raychelle Omamo and Nasser Bourita from Morocco. 

It’s not clear from the accounts, either on Twitter or from Chinese official media, if these calls were scheduled in advance or were more hastily organized in response to recent events in Somaliland or the Nigerian House of Representatives, for example.
