Foreign ministry on defensive after Japan denies sending National Day greetings (2019/10/09)

National Day greetings allegedly sent by the Japanese government are now under scrutiny. Last Friday, a Taiwan mission in Japan released two messages of National Day greetings written for Taiwan and signed by Japan's prime minister and deputy minister. After word got out, a member of Japan's Cabinet Secretariat denied that the prime minister had issued the message. The denial has put Taiwan's foreign ministry on the defensive. A ministry spokesman stepped out to clarify on Wednesday, and she maintains that the greetings are real.

These two National Day greetings to the R.O.C. had been shown at a banquet held by the Fukuoka branch of Taiwan's mission in Osaka. One was said to be from Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo. The other, from Deputy Prime Minister Aso Taro. Chinese media later reported that Okada Naoki, a deputy chief of Japan's Cabinet Secretariat, denied that Abe had sent the greeting. Taiwan's foreign ministry stands by the assertion that he had.

Joanne Ou
Taiwan foreign ministry spokeswoman
Our representative bodies in Japan had in fact received the congratulatory greetings, which were passed on by another party. As for who carried the message, I think that due to the mutual trust between Taiwan and Japan, I am not at liberty to reveal the identity. No disciplinary action has been taken, because to do so would be to presume that someone did something wrong.

Frank Hsieh, Taiwan's de facto ambassador to Japan, said Japan never specifically stated that the greetings were fake. He added, "Diplomacy is a delicate affair." China's foreign ministry responded with force at a news conference.

Geng Shuang
China foreign ministry spokesman
I would like to offer some advice to some people on the island of Taiwan: Don't try to act clever. You'll just end up making fools of yourselves.

Chao Tien-lin
DPP lawmaker
It was said that he didn't send the greetings. It was not said that the greetings were fake. So these greetings were not sent officially through the prime minister's office. Instead, in a friendly gesture made through an unofficial channel, they put forward a message of a groundbreaking nature.

It's still unclear whether the greetings were a breakthrough or faux pas. The premier has urged diplomatic officials to get to the bottom of the matter.

外交部證實確有安倍賀電 謝:外交很微妙

台灣駐大阪代表處福岡分處,日前因為在國慶酒會上,公布首相安倍、副首相麻生太郎,祝賀中華民國國慶的賀電,中國媒體詢問日方,日方回應安倍沒有發出賀電,引發議論,不過外交部週三證實,有賀電,沒有懲處問題,駐日代表謝長廷也表態,外交很微妙。

這兩張祝賀中華民國國慶的賀電,公布在大阪辦事處福岡分處的國慶酒會上,分別署名日本首相安倍晉三、副首相麻生太郎,引發風波,因為中國媒體拿這件事,來問日本官房副長官岡田直樹,日方提到安倍沒有發出賀電,但外交部週三開記者會,澄清有賀電。

[[外交部發言人 歐江安]]
"相關駐日代表機構的確是有收到這個賀電,這個賀電是有人轉至,那至於賀電的來源,我想基於台灣跟日本的互信,我在這邊不方便進一步透露。我沒有用到懲處,因為用懲處你必須先假定他是有錯的。"

駐日代表謝長廷,也說"日方沒說賀電是假的,外交很微妙",雙方說法兜不攏,而這件事也讓中國藉此,大作文章。

[[中國外交部發言人 耿爽]]
"我要奉勸台灣島內的某些人,不要再自作聰明,否則只會自取其辱。"

[[立委(民) 趙天麟]]
"他的說法也只是說,我並沒有發出這樣的賀電,而並不是說這份賀電是假的,它並不由首相府發出正式的賀電,但他卻是私人情誼的方式,透過一些非正式的管道,提出了一些比較突破性的寫法跟說法。"

兩封賀電,是外交突破還是外交笑話,一線之隔,外交部和駐外單位,必須好好解釋清楚。
