    Taiwan helps Paraguay get Indian vaccines (2021/04/08)

    Foreign Minister Joseph Wu says Taiwan helped Paraguay secure much-needed COVID vaccines. He said Taiwan worked with countries with similar values, including the U.S. and Japan, to secure India-made vaccines for Paraguay. Since March, Paraguay has been wracked by protests against the government's response to COVID-19. According to MOFA, China has offered vaccines to Paraguay as bait for severing ties with Taiwan.

    Even as China pushes its vaccine diplomacy in Latin America, foreign minister Wu has confirmed that with the U.S.' help, Paraguay has received vaccines from India.

    The Quad refers to the summit meeting between the U.S., Japan, Australia, and India. During this meeting, the four countries agreed to work together to help other countries receive vaccines. Thanks to the help of these friends, India was able to provide some vaccines to Paraguay. Just two days ago, the Indian vaccine Covaxin gained approval from Mexico for inoculation. This resolved Paraguay's urgent need for COVID vaccines.

    Taiwan-India relations have recently been on the rise. Following the Taroko Express train crash, a representative from India's foreign ministry tweeted his condolences on behalf of the Indian government. According to MOFA spokeswoman Joanne Ou, this is significant, for it is the first time India has issued a statement on Taiwan since the two sides set up reciprocal offices in 1995. However, KMT Legislator Lee Guei-min accused the government of exploiting a tragic event for propaganda purposes. Minister Wu denied the charge.

    Foreign minister
    It is MOFA's responsibility to provide such information to the people. The ministry also has the responsibility to develop foreign relations wherever possible. Therefore, when any country in the world expresses condolences to us, we must express our gratitude in return.

    MOFA urged the opposition party not to resort to political bickering when the entire nation was in mourning.

    不受中國"疫苗外交"打壓 台灣聯合多國反制

    我國友邦巴拉圭日前因疫苗發生多起抗議事件,一度傳出國內有聲浪,要轉向中國的疫苗外交,不過外交部長吳釗燮透露,這回透過與美日等理念相近國家協助探詢意願,已經由印度提供巴拉圭疫苗,解決友邦的燃眉之急。

    中國持續在中南美洲,大打疫苗外交,外交部長吳釗燮證實,在美方協助下,我國友邦巴拉圭,已經輾轉取得印度疫苗。

    [[外交部長 吳釗燮]]
    “Quad,就是(美日澳印)四方會談的高峰會,這個高峰會上面,他們有一個決議就是說,這四個國家(美日澳印)必須聯合起來,針對疫苗的事情協助其他國家。也很巧就是透過這些好朋友的協助,印度有能力提供一些疫苗給巴拉圭,在前天,印度的疫苗Covaxin,也獲得墨西哥的認證,現在就可以開始施打,這個也解決了巴拉圭的燃眉之急。”

    台印關係近來持續升溫,台鐵太魯閣號意外後,日前印度外交部發言人代表印度政府,在推特發文哀悼,我外交部發言人歐江安也回應,這是1995年我國設處後,印度首次針對台灣作出回應,具有重大意義,但被國民黨立委李貴敏作文章,猛酸拿重大死傷慘劇,當大內宣素材。吳釗燮不這樣看.

    [[外交部長 吳釗燮]]
    “把這些(資訊)轉達給國人了解,這是我們外交部的責任,外交部有責任在可能的地方,發展我們對外的關係,因此世界上其他國家,如果有對我們表達哀悼之意,我們一定要對外表達感謝之意。”

    舉國同悲的時刻,外交部呼籲在野黨不需要過度解讀,陷入政治口水。
