    Blinken backs Taiwan at US congressional hearing (2021/09/14)

    America’s top diplomat has reiterated Washington’s commitment to Taiwan at a congressional hearing on Afghanistan. Speaking to the House committee on foreign affairs, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the U.S. would stand by its commitment to Taiwan under the Taiwan Relations Act.

    Antony Blinken
    US Secretary of State
    Mainland China and Taiwan, as I said earlier, whatever protestations they may be making in their newspapers or in their propaganda, there is nothing that China would’ve liked more than to have re-up the war in Afghanistan and to remain bogged down for another five, 10 or 20 years.

    During a congressional hearing, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken said China had used the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan to produce anti-American propaganda. A House representative asked if the Biden administration would do “whatever it takes” to support Ukraine and Taiwan.

    Antony Blinken
    US Secretary of State
    We stand by our commitments to Taiwan under the Taiwan Relations Act. We’ll stand by the commitments that we have to Ukraine.

    Over on Twitter, the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China released a new video, featuring lawmakers from Europe, Japan, Australia, and elsewhere. They called on democracies around the world to reject Beijing’s bullying.

    New Zealand MP
    If Lithuania is punished by Beijing, its democratic allies across the world must be ready to assist.

    Kimberley Kitching
    Australian Senator
    It is time to stand with Lithuania. It is time to stand with Taiwan.

    Back in Washington, Taiwan’s de facto ambassador to the U.S. Hsiao Bi-khim spoke at the American Legislative Exchange Council, a nonprofit of conservative state legislators. She talked up Taiwan’s strong economy, adding that Taiwan’s democracy would not cave in to Chinese pressure.

    Hsiao Bi-khim
    Taiwan envoy to Washington
    Who are questioning the presence of the Confucian Institutes and the way the Chinese government exercises censorship and surveillance on their students. Taiwan is your best alternative for learning the Chinese language in an environment where the young people can exercise their full freedom and tweet whatever they want without the risk of going to jail.

    Hsiao said that Taiwan’s contributions to the global economy were not limited to the products of TSMC. She also said that as free democracies, Taiwan and the U.S. had shared interests in the Indo-Pacific region. Hsiao said she hoped for deeper exchanges between the two countries to counter the Chinese threat.

    國際挺台籲共抗北京霸凌 布林肯:信守對台承諾

    中國日前威脅立陶宛不准設立台灣辦事處,對華政策跨國議會聯盟IPAC在推特發布影片,呼籲民主國家共同對抗北京霸凌。駐美代表蕭美琴,出席全美議會交流理事會時,強調台灣民主自由不容被中國打壓。美國國務卿布林肯,也強調美國會信守對台承諾,遵守台灣關係法。

    [[美國國務卿 布林肯]]
    “針對中國與台灣,像我之前說過的,不論他們(中國官媒)在報紙上怎麼宣傳,中國最希望的,就是我們繼續在阿富汗深陷5年、10年或20年。”

    美國國務卿布林肯出席眾議院外交事務委員會的聽證會,因為美軍撤阿富汗引發亂象,被中國大作文章,眾議員也輪番抨擊,尤其關注美國對讓烏克蘭和台灣的承諾,會不會改變。

    [[美國國務卿 布林肯]]
    “我們會在台灣關係法之下,遵守對台承諾,也會遵守對烏克蘭的承諾。”

    另外,跨國議會聯盟IPAC在推特發布影片,由來自歐洲、日本、澳洲等多國議員接力,呼籲民主國家共同對抗北京霸凌。

    [[紐西蘭國會議員 Louisa Wall]]
    “既然立陶宛遭北京報復,世界上所有民主國家的盟友,就都應當出出手援助。”

    [[澳洲國會議員 Kimberley Kitching]]
    “是時候站出來,支持立陶宛、支持台灣。”

    我國駐美代表蕭美琴,透過出席全美議會交流理事會發聲,強調台灣在經貿的優異表現,台灣的民主自由不容被中國打壓。

    [[駐美代表 蕭美琴]]
    “美國學生如果對孔子學院,以及中國施行審查與監控制度有疑慮,台灣是你們學中文的最佳選項,因為在台灣,學生可以擁有完整的自由,不會因為發了內容敏感的推特就被去關。”

    除了以台積電為例,強調台灣在全球經濟的重要外,蕭美琴也表示,台美同為民主自由國家,在印太戰略上,享有共同利益。也期盼兩國深化交流,一起對抗中國的威脅。
