Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) attempted to interpret the Status Quo by himself, dispatched fighter jets over Taiwan Airspace, claimed Taiwan his territory after he lifted the presidential term limits. Now, he becomes more greedy wants the world listen to him acting like a king of the world, to interpret the international law by asking the international air lines to follow his instruction.
The Civil Aviation Administration of China informed some US carriers recently to remove any information suggesting Taiwan, Hong Kong or Macau are not part of China. May 5, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said, "This is Orwellian nonsense and part of a growing trend by the Chinese Communist Party to impose its political views on American citizens and private companies. We call on China to stop threatening and coercing American carriers and citizens."
China considers Taiwan is a renegade province, an integral part of its territory and China's ministry of foreign affairs spokesperson Geng Shuang (耿爽) rebut on the following day May 6, “that foreign companies operating in China should respect China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, abide by Chinese lawsand respect the Chinese people's national feelings.”
But question is China simply can’t provide any proof of when and how Taiwan became an inalienable part of China’s territory. Since Qing Emperor ceded Taiwan to Japan in 1895, Taiwan was not related to China any more. Taiwan was still part of Japan’s territory in 1949 while PRC established as a nation. Japan renounced all right, title and claim to Formosa and the Pescadores under the San Francisco Peace Treaty signed in 1951 and effective on April 28, 1952. Taiwan has never been a part of PRC’s territory for any single moment since then.
Chairman of American Institute in Taipei, James Moriarty delivered a speech titled “The US and Taiwan: An Enduring Partnership,” at Stanford University on May 3. He condemned China’s Orwellian nonsense of demanding the websites of international organizations and companies could not recognize Taiwan’s autonomy, such as asked some international airlines not to list Taiwan as a country. He said, “It’s unjustified and does not accomplish anything. It’s bullying, and it’s childish.”
In the opening statement, Moriarty reassured that the US policy commits to maintain peace, security, and stability in the Western Pacific and consider any effort to determine the future of Taiwan by other than peaceful means, including by boycotts or embargoes, a threat to the peaceand security of the Western Pacific area and of grave concern to the United States. The U.S. Taiwan policy is continuously driven by One China policy, Three Communiqués and the Taiwan Relation Act. Trump’s administration reaffirmed the US One China policy has not changed. It is for the enduring interests of theU.S. and the desire for cross-strait stability, there should be no unilateral attempts to change the status quo.
Moriarty said, “Observers in the US are deeply troubled that China has increased pressure on Taiwan. Recent congressional actions on Taiwan, like the unanimous passage of the TaiwanTravel Act, reflect those concerns.” Washington is concerned by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army’s increased activities around Taiwan; equally alarming is Beijing’s unilateral launch of north bound flights on the M503 route inJanuary, as well as the Dominican Republic’s sudden switch of diplomatic recognition to China on May 1, all these were unilaterally attempts to change the status quo that made the US deeply concern.
As a matter of fact the Republic of Dominica established diplomatic relation with ROC not Taiwan in 1940, so there is no any severance of relationship between Taiwan and Dominica. Yes, Taiwan has strongly desired to participate in international organization especially the realm of public health but obstructed by PRC. The US commits to help Taiwan participate international organizations that do not require sovereign states as members.
Referring to ingrained expectations of political participation and freedom of expression Moriarty said ‘democracy chip’ was in Taiwan young people’s DNA. Highlighting the lack of democratic freedoms in China, he remarked that reunification is unlikely underthe current atmosphere. “Democracies are flawed, democracies get to vote again, democracies get to try and improve,” he said. “I can’t think of any betters ystem than being able to have people stand up and say ‘I don’t like the decisions my leaders are making.”
Moriarty pointed out “Stability in the Taiwan strait is essential. It is this enduring interest inpeace and security that undergirds the U.S. policy to maintain capacity to resist any resort to force. But, that commitment alone will not secure Taiwan against the backdrop of an increasingly complex cross-strait environment, Taiwan must do its part to invest in capabilities that deter aggression and help Taiwan mount an effective defense should deterrence fail.”
In the speech Moriarty mentioned the new AIT Taipei office building with a cost of 216 million US dollars shows the commitment of the US to support Taiwan. At closing he said Taiwan is a vital and reliable partner in the West Pacific region,Taiwan remains continuously strong supported from the Unites States of America.
