China extends influence in Pacific as Solomon Islands break with Taiwan

Taiwan has lost its largest ally in the Pacific after the Solomon Islands on Tuesday confirmed it is switching diplomatic allegiance to China, and observers say other Pacific nations may soon follow.

Taiwan knows if it wants to protect itself from Beijing its energy is better spent building diplomatic, trade and ideological alliances with its neighbours, Europe and the United States, something it has pursued quite successfully in recent years.

Anger in Washington over the Solomons switch though is little more than crocodile tears, not to mention hypocritical. The US seems to expect largely impoverished nations that still back Taiwan to reject the same realpolitik that Washington embraced four decades ago.

Lots of righteous indignation from US politicians over Solomons switching recognition from Taipei to Beijing. Washington did the same thing in 1979. Can’t see many of those same politicians calling on Washington to recognise Taiwan as a country, which it de facto is.
