Wu Delivers Speech to Slovak Think Tank 吳釗燮斯洛伐克演說 籲全球合作抗威權

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken issued a press statement supporting Taiwan's participation in the UN system. Meanwhile, Foreign Affairs Minister Joseph Wu gave a speech during his trip to Slovakia.


 

Fifty years have passed since UN Resolution 2758 was passed. On Oct. 26, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken issued a press statement to say he supports Taiwan's participation in the UN system. He said excluding Taiwan undermines the important work of the UN and its related bodies, and the US encourages all member states to join them in supporting Taiwan's participation. Blinken also tweeted that "Taiwan is a critical partner to the United States and a democratic success story. Taiwan should have meaningful participation in the UN system, especially as we face an unprecedented number of global challenges." President Tsai Ing-wen responded with a tweet expressing her gratitude. Blinken's words drew a sharp rebuke from China.

Ma Xiaoguang, Spokesperson, Taiwan Affairs Office, PRC: “For some time, the US has been making various statements that severely violate related UN resolutions, the one China principle, and the Three Communiques. It is sending erroneous signals to Taiwan independence supporters. ”

China and the US have had several confrontations over UN General Assembly resolutions as of late. The Taiwan Affairs Office reiterated that Taiwan is a part of China and therefore has no authority to participate in the UN. Meanwhile, Foreign Affairs Minister Joseph Wu is currently traveling around Europe. The Taiwan Affairs Office criticized the trip and urged related countries to abide by the one China principle.

Joseph Wu, Foreign Affairs Minister: “The fatal pandemic was a real test to countries' public health systems.”

On Oct. 26, Wu delivered a speech to Slovak think tank GLOBSEC. He urged everyone to cooperate to resist authoritarianism. Afterwards, he granted an interview to AFP, where he spoke about cross-strait issues.


Joseph Wu, Foreign Affairs Minister: “The threat is there and the threat is getting worse. But it will be very hard for me to predict that there's going to be a war between Taiwan and China. It depends on the leadership on both sides to be rational. "


Wu said that a Taiwan-China conflict would be a disaster for Taiwan, China, and the entire world. He claimed that China is using tensions with Taiwan to divert domestic attention from its economic downturn and energy shortage. Wu will now travel to the Czech Republic.

 

 

 

聯大2758號決議通過滿50年,美國國務卿布林肯26號透過長篇聲明支持台灣參與聯合國,他表示,排除台灣有損聯合國與相關組織工作,美國鼓勵所有聯合國會員國,支持台灣有意義參與。布林肯更透過推特強調,台灣是美國的重要夥伴,也是民主的成功故事,台灣應該有意義地參與聯合國體系,尤其當我們面臨空前的全球挑戰時,總統蔡英文推文感謝,但也再度引起中國強烈不滿。

中國國台辦發言人馬曉光表示:「美方一段時間以來,編出各種說法,嚴重違背聯合國的有關決議,嚴重違背一個中國原則,和中美三個聯合公報,向台獨勢力發出嚴重錯誤信號。」

中美近來在聯大決議上不斷交鋒,國台辦也再重申台灣是中國的一部分,無權參與聯合國,不只如此,外交部長吳釗燮正在歐洲進行訪問,國台辦也對此批評,並敦促有關國家要恪守一個中國原則。

外交部長吳釗燮表示:「致命的疫情是對國家,公共衛生系統的真正考驗。」

吳釗燮26號在斯洛伐克智庫「全球安全論壇」上發表演說,呼籲全球合作對抗威權,會後接受法新社訪問時,也對台海議題做出回應。

外交部長吳釗燮表示:「威脅就在那裡,而且威脅越來越嚴重,但我很難去預測台灣,和中國之間是否會發生戰爭,這取決於雙方的領導人是否理性。」

吳釗燮表示台灣和中國如果爆發任何衝突,不僅對台灣,對中國以及全世界而言,都將是一場災難。中國或許會利用升高與台灣緊張情勢,來轉移中國國內對經濟成長趨緩與能源短缺的注意,吳釗燮接著前往捷克繼續訪問。
