TAIPEI -- All Taiwanese diplomatic personnel stationed in The Gambia and their Gambian counterparts in Taiwan will head to their respective homes by Dec. 18, a month after the two countries formally broke off diplomatic ties, a Ministry of Foreign Affairs official said Sunday.
The withdrawal of embassy personnel has entered the final phase, according to the official who asked not to be named.
Diplomatic workers from either country are required to leave their posts by that date, with exceptions only for personnel dealing with “major issues” that cannot be resolved within the timeframe.
