    US invites Taiwan to Summit for Democracy; China, Russia, Vietnam excluded (2021/11/24)

    The Biden administration has invited Taiwan to its global democracy summit next month. The online gathering aims to rally likeminded countries in the fight to advance human rights and tackle corruption and authoritarianism. Taiwan is among 110 invited participants, according to a list released on the state department's website. China, Russia, and Vietnam were conspicuously missing from the list.

    The U.S. is planning to hold its first Summit for Democracy in mid-December. Earlier this week, the U.S. state department released a list of 110 invited participants. Taiwan was one of them.

    The U.S. has made it very clear that Taiwan is a member of the democratic alliance. Given that, the U.S. supports Taiwan's participation in many international events, including those hosted by the U.S. I think that this is quite a positive development. It will inform more people around the world that Taiwan is a sovereign and independent country that is not subordinate to the People's Republic of China. So I think that this is a good thing. In addition, we look forward to Taiwan continuing to play an indispensible role in the region throughout the course of its participation.

    The Summit for Democracy was proposed by U.S. President Joe Biden during his presidential campaign. The summit aims to convene likeminded countries. Its three-part agenda is to defend against authoritarianism, fight corruption, and promote human rights. The list of invited participants includes Japan, South Korea, the U.K., and Taiwan. Countries excluded from the gathering include China, Russia, and Vietnam.

    DPP lawmaker
    From the list of 110 invited countries, we can see that among the nations not invited, the more notable ones include China and Russia. It's glaringly obvious that among those democratic nations invited to this democracy summit, there is Taiwan but not China. For Taiwan's international visibility and its bid for international participation, this is a very positive development.

    The first Summit for Democracy will be held online from Dec. 9-10. Minister without Portfolio Audrey Tang and de facto ambassador to Washington Hsiao Bi-khim will represent Taiwan at the event.

    美邀我參與"全球民主峰會" 中.俄.越遭排除

    美方宣布將於12月中,舉辦首屆「全球民主峰會」,邀請全世界110個國家參與,而且也包含台灣。不過名單中卻少了中國、俄羅斯和越南等國家,綠營立委認為,這對台灣的國際能見度和參與度都會提升,也代表美方認同台灣,是民主同盟一份子。

    美國正在籌備第一屆「全球民主峰會」,預計12月中旬登場,國務院官網日前公告與會國家,共有110國參與,名單中還包含台灣。

    [[立委(民) 蔡適應]]
    “美國已經說得非常清楚了,台灣是民主同盟的一份子,所以在這個狀況之下,美國支持台灣參與許多國際上的活動,包括美國來主辦的活動。我覺得這是一個滿正向的發展,這也可以讓更多的外國友人知道,台灣是一個主權獨立的國家,跟中華人民共和國並不是互相隸屬的,所以我認為這是一個好事情,我們也期待台灣在參與的過程中,能夠持續扮演區域中一個不可或缺的角色。”

    全球民主峰會是美國總統拜登,在競選期間所提出,希望結合理念相同的國家,共同努力打擊貪腐和威權主義,並促進人權發展,包括日韓、英國和台灣等民主國家,都受邀參與,但是中國、俄羅斯和越南,則被排除在外。

    [[立委(民) 王定宇]]
    “這一次110國受邀的國家當中,比較特別沒有受邀請的國家,包含中國跟俄羅斯等。很明顯的民主高峰會所邀請的民主國家,有台灣並沒有中國,而這對台灣的國際能見度,以及國際參與度上,都是一件非常正向發展的好事情。”

    首屆全球民主峰會將在12月9至10日線上舉行,行政院政委唐鳳、駐美代表蕭美琴將代表台灣參加。
