Costa Rica's Ambassador to Beijing Says China Pressuring For Work Visas

Costa Rica's ambassador to Beijing Antonio Burgues has condemned the pressure brought by a Chinese diplomat in Costa Rica to secure 100 working visas for Chinese workers

Burgues, identifying the diplomat as commercial attaché Mao Furong, slammed "another case of unwelcome intervention... in Costa Rican internal affairs," in a letter sent three weeks ago to the deputy foreign minister Carlos Roverssi, the newspaper said.

"I hope it's the last time," he wrote.

According to the letter, Burgues noted that Mao met with Roverssi over the issue, and Roverssi sent a diplomatic note to the Chinese embassy regretting a delay in granting the work visas for 100 Chinese nationals to come to the Central American nation to build homes.

The pressure from Beijing began after the ministra de Trabajo (Labour Minister) Sandra Piszk sent a request to the immigration service not to give visas to for the Chinese construction workers.

Chinese labour is being used to build Costa Rica's national stadium, a project undertaken by the Chinese government as a donation to Costa Rica.

Costa Rica ended a decades long diplomatic relationship with Taiwan in favour of China in June 2007.
