Taiwan's foreign affairs head Joseph Wu on Thursday tendered his resignation after Burkina Faso announced it was breaking "diplomatic" ties with the island.

"As a government official, I must be responsible for policies, and I have tendered my resignation," Wu told a press conference.

Burkina Faso is the second country to cut "diplomatic" ties with Taiwan within weeks following Dominican Republic earlier this month.
