    Former House speaker Paul Ryan praises Taiwan at AIT banquet (2019/04/15)

    Today the American Institute in Taiwan held a banquet celebrating 40 years of the Taiwan Relations Act. Present at the event was former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, who is visiting Taiwan for the first time. Ryan had high praise for Taiwan's democracy, saying that the U.S. wants the rest of the world to be more like Taiwan. President Tsai Ing-wen, who also spoke at the event, thanked the U.S. for upholding its commitment to the TRA.

    Former House speaker Ryan is here in Taiwan with a delegation to celebrate the TRA’s 40th anniversary and to show affirmation of Taiwan’s values.

    Paul Ryan
    Former U.S. House of Representatives speaker
    We want the rest of the world to be more like Taiwan. Taiwan actively uses its own experiences not only to help others but to help others help themselves. The world desperately needs more of Taiwan’s brand of leadership.

    Tsai Ing-wen
    President
    The TRA is more than just a policy. It’s a commitment of the values of freedom and democracy. And that commitment has defined the partnership between Taiwan and the U.S. and made us an indispensible force for good in the region and around the world.

    As the two sides celebrated their warming relationship, trouble was stirring across the strait. Taiwan’s military confirmed today that the PLA had dispatched jets once again in an act of provocation against Taiwan. Today President Tsai went off-script to address the incident.

    Tsai Ing-wen
    President
    China recently has increased its military activities in the region. In fact, just today the Chinese air force flew military aircraft over Miyako Strait and Bashi Strait, further challenging the stability in the Taiwan Strait and this part of the world.

    James F. Moriarty
    AIT chairman
    It damages the cross-strait relationship and it damages any attempts by China to win the hearts and minds of the Taiwan people.

    Amid escalating cross-strait tensions, Moriarty’s remarks are a welcome expression of U.S. support for Taiwan and a sign of deepening relations.

    台灣關係法40年 美前眾議院議長:台有領袖風範

    台灣關係法40周年,美國在台協會舉辦慶祝酒會。首次來訪的前眾議院議長--保羅萊恩,也應邀出席,盛讚台灣值得世界借鏡;而蔡總統透過致詞,感謝這項法案,鞏固美台夥伴關係。

    台灣關係法40周年,首次率團來訪的前眾議院議長保羅萊恩,肯定台灣價值。

    [[美國眾議院前議長 保羅萊恩]]
    “我們希望世界上的其他地方能向台灣學習,台灣不僅積極透過自身經驗協助他人,還幫助夥伴學習自立自強,我們的世界,亟需更多像台灣一樣的領袖風範”

    [[總統 蔡英文]]
    “台灣關係法不只是一項政策,更是對自由民主價值的承諾,這項承諾確立美台的夥伴關係,讓我們成為此區域與世界上一股不可或缺的良善力量”

    但就在雙方慶祝關係升溫時,軍方證實中國軍機今天再次遠航擾台,讓蔡總統決定脫稿演出。

    [[總統 蔡英文]]
    “中國增加軍事行動,事實上就在今天,中國的空軍軍機再次通過巴士海峽及宮古海峽,直接挑戰了區域穩定”

    [[AIT主席 莫健]]
    “這只會傷害兩岸關係,也不會幫助中國贏得台灣人民的心”

    公開表達挺台立場,讓台美關係再深化,又多幾分保障。
