Gya: Oooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, what a few yen can do to you

IT’S a non-issue.

That’s the line the main Opposition People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) maintained yesterday on the recent controversial visit to Taiwan by its Leader, Mr Robert Corbin.

But the Guyana Government yesterday registered disapproval of the visit by circulating a motion in Parliament calling on the National Assembly to disassociate itself from the action taken by Mr Corbin, a PNCR Member of Parliament.

The Taiwan trip has chilled the once warm ties between the PNCR and China which has registered strong protest at the visit.

Chinese Ambassador, Mr Song Tao, whose tenure here ends on August 15, cancelled a scheduled Wednesday courtesy call on Corbin at PNCR headquarters because of “health reasons”, according to a spokesman at the Chinese Embassy here.
Yeah, don't piss off China.
