【時代力量聲明】強烈譴責中國惡劣打壓台灣 唯有正名才是外交活路

針對今日薩爾瓦多與我國正式斷交,時代力量強烈譴責中國打壓台灣國際空間,並呼籲國際社會共同正視中國持續破壞兩岸現狀,以及升高東亞緊張的蠻橫舉動。同時,希望政府別再寄望中國善意,應有自信地推動國家正常化工程,積極啟動憲改及支持正名連署,時代力量願為後盾。
 
中國近來頻繁對台灣進行文攻武嚇,從軍機繞行台灣,強迫外國航空和飯店業者更改對台名稱,操弄東亞奧委會違約取消台中東亞青運,威逼台商及藝人承認一個中國,到以不當金援令布吉納法索、多明尼加及薩爾瓦多與我斷交,在在證明,中國就是破壞東亞區域和平穩定的罪魁禍首,對台灣的惡意打壓也不會有止境。
 
我們也必須呼籲國際社會,正視中國在強推九二共識不成,同時面臨美中貿易戰及政經情勢不穩的內外交逼下,持續以打壓台灣空間及升高國際緊張的手段,企圖轉移焦點的現象。這也證明了,中國任何善意及保證皆毫無信用可言,請國際社會與我們站在一起,才能真正遏止中國的惡行。
 
時代力量認為,台灣的外交已不該繼續「維持現狀」。觀察中國近年來的各項舉動,不論是商業、政治、司法、運動或學術場域,中國都要抹去台灣作為主權獨立國家的參與空間。台灣在成為正常化國家之前,主權地位正在中國各種小動作下不斷受侵蝕,因此必須仰賴一次次的實質合作、司法判例來維護獨立、自主的主權地位。
 
因此,我們呼籲蔡政府,必須有意識地在外交策略上,積極地以「台灣」為主體,作出有別於「中國代表權」的主張,並且在各層級、各面向的外交工作及國安體系中,貫徹、實踐「代表台灣」的策略及決心。
 
在即將到來的立法會期中,我們也向朝野各政黨呼籲,我們應要積極推動台灣國家正常化的立法,特別是要將公投法補正,使之納入領土、國旗、國號變更。我們認為,唯有運用台灣人在民主制度下行使的人民主權,以「台灣」作為正名向世界發聲,使台灣國家正常化、對中關係國際化,才能真正維護台灣的尊嚴,以及民主、自由的價值。
 
最後,時代力量要再次敬告中國,我們台灣人民不會懼怕,也不會屈服各種打壓,且正好相反的,這只會使我們更加團結一致,下定決心要向世界證明台灣是獨立自主的事實!

 

 
New Power Party Declaration 2018-08-21
 
“Condemning China’s malicious suppression of Taiwan.
Rectifying Taiwan’s name is the only means towards diplomatic subsistence.”
 
In regards to El Salvador severing ties with Taiwan today, the New Power Party (NPP) strongly condemns China’s suppression of Taiwan’s international space, and heeds the international community to recognize China’s destruction of cross-strait relations as well as their belligerent actions towards raising tensions in East Asia. In the meantime, the NPP hopes that the government cease its expectations that China will eventually display its goodwill towards Taiwan, and should confidently set in motion Taiwan’s path toward normalcy, constitutional reform and to support the petition in rectifying Taiwan’s name .
 
China’s recent coercion of Taiwan, from the circling of military jets, the press on celebrities, businessmen, foreign airline companies and hotel chains to alter Taiwan’s name, manipulating the East Asia Olympic Committee into cancelling the Taichung Youth Games, to the inappropriate use of financial incentives causing Burkina Faso, the Dominican Republic and El Salvador to sever ties, once again demonstrates that China is the culprit in destroying the peace in the East Asia region and will not cease its malicious suppression of Taiwan.
 
We must heed the international community to acknowledge China’s failure to force the 1992 consensus while the trade war rages on. The international community must understand that the suppression of Taiwan’s international space and the deliberate heightening of tensions by China is simply an attempt to shift the focus away from the destabilization of the political economy under internal and external pressure delivered by China. This also proves that any of China’s gestures of goodwill and their guarantees are void of credibility. We invite the international community to stand with us, in order to effectively stop China’s pernicious actions.
 
The New Power Party deems the foreign policy of “maintaining the status quo” can no longer be held. We have observed in recent years China’s ambition to wipe out any form of existence and participation of Taiwan, whether in commercial, political, judicial, sportive or academic arenas. Before Taiwan can complete its normalization as a nation-state, the sovereign status of Taiwan is under constant threat due to China’s regrettable actions. Therefore, Taiwan needs to make its status as an independent state known to the international community, through practical diplomatic cooperation and through the accumulation of judicial precedences.
 
Hence, we call on the Tsai Ying-Wen administration to readjust her foreign policy. Taiwan needs to deliberately part from the diplomatic stance associated with the anachronic discourse of Taiwan “representing China” and instead seek to lay out a foreign policy that is based solely on the Taiwanese people and the name “Taiwan”. Moreover, to execute this strategy with consistency and determination across all levels and all aspects of the diplomatic and national security agenda.
 
The NPP would also like to call on the political parties in Taiwan to push forward the legislative endeavors to normalize Taiwan in the upcoming session of the Legislative Yuan, especially on amending the Referendum Act to hold referendums on national territory, the national flag and to the formal name of the state. The NPP believes that the only way to defend the dignity of Taiwan and to protect our democratic and free way of living, is by exercising the Taiwanese people’s sovereignty under a democratic process to rectify the name of our country as “Taiwan”, thereby normalizing the status of Taiwan and treating China as a international counterpart.
 
Lastly, the New Power Party would like to inform the People’s Republic of China, that Taiwanese people will show no fear under such oppression. On the contrary, Chinese pressure will only spur our solidarity and manifest to the world the fact that Taiwan is an independent, democratic and free country.
