Beijing has criticised such moves by US lawmakers as attempts to interfere in China’s domestic affairs. Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian has called the TAIPEI Act a “severe violation of the one-China principle”.

24 Feb 2020

Taiwan currently maintains full diplomatic relations with 15 nations. Since 2016, when Taiwan’s pro-democracy president Tsai Ing-wen came to power, eight countries have severed diplomatic relations with Taipei in favor of Beijing, which Tsai described as “part of a series of diplomatic and military acts of coercion” by China.


After being re-elected in January by a historic landslide, Tsai told the world that China must face the reality of Taiwan’s independence and that Taiwan deserved the mainland’s respect. “We have a separate identity and we’re a country of our own,” she said in an interview with the BBC.

According to the bill, the US should advocate for Taiwan’s membership in all international organisations in which statehood is not a requirement and says Taiwan should be granted observer status in other appropriate international organisations.


“Today and on all days, Congress continues to send a message to the world that America stands with Taiwan. … We [must] ensure that Taiwan has a seat at the international decision-making table, including at the United Nations,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said when her chamber passed the bill.


Taiwan had been an observer at the World Health Organisation (WHO) under the name “Chinese Taipei” since 2009 when the cross-Taiwan Strait relations were improved under the Ma Ying-jeou administration. However, the status was revoked after Tsai’s election in 2016.


Amid the global health threat of Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus that started in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, the US and China have clashed over Taiwan’s exclusion from WHO meetings. Taiwanese experts did manage to attend a WHO meeting in mid-February, without giving their nationalities.

We should start recognising Taiwan as a sovereign country and start full diplomatic relations with them. China should be shown it's place and we should stare right into their eyes. And also give full backing to quad...:daru:
It's not upto us. Taiwan has to first declare Independence and introduce itself as a new nation not just as alternative china. It will have to renounce it's claim on China and disputed territories. Taiwan still formally claims arunachal just as Beijing does.

So Taiwan must break any connection to it's Chinese past first. Also USA must immediately sign a treaty with newly independent taiwan which gives Taiwan nuke protection against Chinese attack.
Then Europe and India with Japan and Australia can lead the world in recognizing Taiwan.

India should not get serious with Taiwan till Taiwan accepts India's geopolitical views.

India need to ask following questions:

- Is Taiwan willing to return COK to India?
- Does Taiwan accept POK as Indian territory?
- Is Taiwan OK with free Tibet?

Taiwan isn't holding any Indian Land . All Taiwan has to do is let of it's claim as original Chinese govt. And then Taiwan has no issue with India at all.

Unless taiwanese able to broke the ccp+military leadership, nothing there for india(or for rest of the world for that matters) to leverage china.
Even hk pro democracy protesters tend to leave out taiwan from the overall dialogue.


Realistically speaking taiwan,hk,pro democracy blah-blah never works in real world scenarios.

Most importantly,mainland china has been awfully quiet(predominantly due to the economic activities)and insulated from the hk,taiwan bs.


If you really want to breakup china,hit mainland China,hit hard.(with overt and covert ops)


Mainland China comprised of The majority of the population. Also with densely populated zones,so if you managed to topple one zone/province rest will fall like a house of cards.



Taiwan and hk are nothing but inflated fart bags.
