    European Parliament adopts pro-Taiwan report amid Chinese pressure (2021/10/22)

    The European Parliament overwhelmingly passed a report on Thursday calling for enhanced political relations and cooperation with Taiwan. Among other things, the report calls for the EU to prepare to negotiate a bilateral investment agreement with Taiwan. It also calls for the EU's mission to Taiwan to be renamed the "European Union Office in Taiwan." The report was passed amid Chinese pressure on European members of parliament. One of them even said China had threatened her with "consequences" if she endorsed the report.

    Members of the European Parliament pose for a photo with Taiwan’s representative to the EU, Tsai Ming-yen. The picture was taken on Thursday at 4 p.m. Taipei time, just after the European Parliament passed a report on enhancing Taiwan-EU political relations and cooperation.

    European MPs voted 580-26 to overwhelmingly pass the report.

    The report calls for enhancing the EU’s relations with Taiwan. It calls for the EU’s representative office in Taiwan to be renamed from the current “European Economic and Trade Office” to “European Union Office in Taiwan.” It also calls on the EU to prepare for negotiations to sign a bilateral investment agreement with Taiwan. The report also urges the EU to do more to address China’s continued military belligerence against Taiwan.

    The author of the report, Swedish MP Charlie Weimers called the approval of the text a historic vote that sends a strong signal to Beijing.

    Charlie Weimers
    Swedish member of the European Parliament
    The EU must condemn China’s action in the strongest possible terms, and stress that China’s actions against Taiwan will have consequences for EU-China relations.

    Another Swedish Member of the European Parliament Evin Incir, said that she had received threats from China after expressing support for the report. She said her support for Taiwan remained unshaken.

    Evin Incir
    Swedish member of the European Parliament
    A few months ago I received a letter of threat by the Chinese embassy in Sweden. “We hope that you withdraw your support immediately and not pursue this course of action, otherwise you shall be held responsible for all consequences.” I will proudly vote in favor of the report today in defense of democracy and freedom.

    President Tsai Ing-wen also celebrated the passing of the report on social media.


    She pointed out that this was the first time the European Parliament had passed an official text regarding the political relations between the EU and Taiwan. She said its passing was extremely meaningful, and showed the European Parliament’s high regard for Taiwan. The president thanked the MPs that had backed the text for continuing to support Taiwan despite outside pressure. Meanwhile, the report ruffled a few feathers across the strait.

    Wang Wenbin
    Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson
    The European Parliament's adoption of the above-mentioned report is vile in nature and has an egregious impact. China strongly condemns and rejects this move.

    Arthur Ding
    NCCU honorary professor
    Over the past few years, Xi Jinping has adopted a series of very hard actions both domestically and internationally, which have sparked strong backlash against China in European and Western countries. Frankly speaking, this has greatly helped Taiwan shine brighter and brighter on the international stage.

    The scholar says that China’s wolf-warrior diplomacy has only been to its detriment in Europe, boosting support for Taiwan.

    So far this year, the European Parliament has passed 12 pro-Taiwan texts. Their contents range from affirming Taiwan’s strategy against COVID and calling for stronger EU-Taiwan relations, to expressing concern for China’s military intimidation of Taiwan and support for Taiwan’s inclusion in international organizations. Altogether, they show that support for Taiwan is growing in Europe, and that relations between Taiwan and the EU are stronger than ever.

    歐洲議會通過挺台報告 議員曝曾遭中國威脅

    台灣與歐盟的關係有了大進展!歐洲議會以壓倒性票數,通過首份「歐盟-台灣」報告案,包含把在台灣的"歐洲經貿辦事處"更名為"歐盟駐台灣辦事處等「挺台」內容。而力挺此報告的瑞典籍議員殷契爾透露,中國寄給她威脅信,但她無所畏懼投下支持票,要讓世界知道,台灣並不孤單。也讓台灣跟歐盟的關係,進入新的時代!

    多位歐洲議會議員、與我國駐歐盟代表蔡明彥開心合照,手中拿著歐洲議會在台北時間週四下午,剛通過的"歐盟-台灣政治關係與合作報告案"。

    歐洲議會以580票支持、26票反對,壓倒性通過這份歐台報告,

    內容呼籲提升與台灣的關係、明確建議把在台灣的"歐洲經貿辦事處"更名為"歐盟駐台灣辦事處",並啟動雙邊投資協定的談判程序,更呼籲協助台灣抵抗中國軍事威脅。

    負責起草的瑞典籍歐洲議員魏莫斯強調,這是一次歷史性的投票,是歐洲向北京發出的強烈訊號。

    [[歐洲議員 魏莫斯]]
    歐盟必須以最嚴厲的措辭,譴責中國的行動,並且強調中國對台灣的行動,將對歐中關係產生影響”

    另一位瑞典籍歐洲議員殷契爾更透露,因為支持歐台報告,收到來自中國的威脅,但自己仍堅定挺台。

    [[歐洲議員 殷契爾]]
    “幾個月前,我收到,中國駐瑞典大使館的威脅信,(寫著)我們希望你立刻收回,對歐台報告的支持行動,不然你將要對後續後果負責,我驕傲地支持歐台報告,以捍衛民主及自由”

    總統蔡英文也在臉書發文,直呼這是歷史性的一刻!

    因為這是歐洲議會史上第一次針對歐台關係寫的官方文件,有非常重要的意義,彰顯歐洲議會對台灣的高度重視。蔡總統還特別感謝推動報告、在壓力下依然挺身支持台灣的歐洲議員。然而歐洲跟台灣關係融洽,又讓中國玻璃心碎。

    [[中國外交部發言人 汪文斌]]
    “歐洲議會通過的上述報告,性質和影響惡劣,中方對此表示,強烈譴責和堅決反對”

    [[政大東亞所名譽教授 丁樹範]]
    “過去幾年習近平對內對外,採取了一系列,非常強硬的做法,造成歐洲以及西方國家,對中國非常強大的反彈力量,那這東西,坦白講,對我們是一個非常大的幫助,台灣的曝光率在國際,是越來越高”

    學者指出中國的戰狼外交,在歐洲踢到鐵板,因此讓各國轉向台灣。

    看看歐洲議會從今年1月至今,已經通過12項友台議案,除了肯定台灣的防疫成果,也呼籲歐盟應強化與台灣的關係,關切中國對台灣的軍事挑釁,以及支持台灣參加國際組織等內容,都在在顯示歐洲挺台力道強勁,也宣告台灣與歐盟交流互動,進入新的時代。
