Kingstown, July 16 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) has arrived in Taiwan's diplomatic ally St. Vincent and the Grenadines, on the third stop of her 12-day visit to the country's four Caribbean allies.

Tsai was warmly received by Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves at Argyle International Airport in the capital Kingstown upon her arrival at around 10 a.m. Tuesday local time.

During her one-and-a-half-day stay in the country, Tsai is scheduled to address parliament, oversee the signing of a bilateral accord on the fight against transnational crime and another pact to facilitate bilateral financial cooperation.

Tsai is scheduled to depart St. Vincent around noon Wednesday local time before heading to St. Lucia for three days on the last leg of her state visit to the Caribbean, including Haiti and St.Kitts and Nevis.

On her return, Tsai will stay over in the United States for two nights before flying back to Taiwan on July 22.
