Could you please explain the following in bold?
1. As it turns out, Latin America is providing China with equally target rich opportunities.
2. In both Latin America and Africa, China is pursuing its imperialistic agenda with a Taiwanese twist. Both Africa and Latin America are playing an ever-increasingly important role in Beijing's strategy of the "diplomatic encirclement" of Taiwan.
Especially, what's the meaning of "twist" there?
(No need to thank people in advance (not that I ever "got" that). We have the "Thanks" feature for that.)
