Taipei-Vice President Chen Chien-jen will attend the inauguration of re-elected Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez later in January, according to a spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) on Thursday.
Andrew Lee revealed during a press conference that Chen will represent President Tsai Ing-wen at the Jan. 27 ceremony.
The ministry is currently planning the vice president's visit to Central America and will reveal more details about the trip when the time is right, he said.
Hernandez was declared the winner of last November's election in Honduras three weeks after election day on Dec. 17, amid ongoing opposition claims of electoral fraud.
On Dec. 27, Tsai congratulated Hernandez on his re-election via a video conference call, making her one of the first world leaders to extend her congratulations to the Honduran president for his win.
