1954年12月2日，中華民國與美國在華府、簽署中美共同防禦條約Mutual Defense Treaty Between the United States and the Republic of China，全文共計十條，於1955年3月3日生效。條約第六條清楚標明：所謂「領土」及「領域」對中華民國來說，是指臺灣及澎湖諸島，北美合眾國是指在其管轄下的西太平洋屬領諸島。第二條及第五條的規定，也適用於互相同意所決定的其他領域。該條約由美國正式通知中華民國，已於台灣時間1980年1月1日終止、失效作廢。
美國聯邦法院巡迴法官，白紙黑字明文告知世人，台灣人民沒有被世界公開承認的國籍。時下台灣人，拿中華民國護照，中華人民共和國說，中華民國已於1971年10月25日被中華人民共和國繼承，但中國、不論是中華民國或中華人民共和國，卻都不曾擁有過台灣的領土主權，這就是今日台灣的盲點與無奈。2020年11月12日前國務卿龐培歐說，台灣從來不是中國的一部份 (Taiwan has never been a part of China)。2021年3月15日美國國防部官員說，台灣自古不屬中國 (Taiwan was never part of China)。中國不是台灣的宗主國。
It is indeed saddest a Taiwanese not known Taiwan’s history
Taiwan was ceded long ago, China has never owned Taiwan
The US Congress interpreted Taiwan status
The US biparty congress proposed the Taiwan International Solidarity Act on April 19, 2021. The bill mentioned that the UN Resolution 2578 only deals with the issue of Chinese representation and does not involve Taiwan. On April 21, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee (Senate Foreign Relations Committee) passed 21 to 1 high votes in favor. The major bill on China’s strategic policy, the "2021 Strategic Competition Act", mobilizes various diplomatic and economic activities. Confronting China with strategic tools is considered a milestone bill for the two parties in the US to unanimously move toward strengthening confrontation in their China policy.
The ruling and the opposition embrace the ROC
With these two bills proposed, the vast majority of Taiwan’s ruling and opposition parties and politicians either think that Taiwan belongs to China or hold that the ROC is Taiwan and Taiwan is the ROC, leaving the world frustrated and confused. Not knowing how to distinguish Taiwan from China either ROC or PRC. It helps a great deal to clarify the confusion. It may be said that Taiwan belongs to China at all, because the KMT accepts the one-China principle and believes that both ROC and PRC belong to one China, and that Taiwan belongs to ROC and China. And the ruling DPP may wish to give more and insist on the national title of the ROC. Although it calls itself ROC Taiwan, it says that the ROC was founded in 1912 and senior than the PRC in 1949, and it does not accept that the ROC was replaced in 1971 under the UN resolution, it is considered in the international community that it has been officially succeeded by the PRC.
DPP defends ROC who does it represent?
What kind of relationship does Taiwan, Japan, the US and China have? Let us review history to open the skylights to speak up; from the records left in the past, we will examine the entanglements between China, Japan, the US, and Taiwan, as well as the various political parties in China, and those who have historically ruled Taiwan, their cognition and assertion to the legal status of Taiwan. Macroscopically, at present, only the DPP is defending the ROC. This is because KMT believes that it has long been replaced by PRC; KMT dares not mention ROC in front of PRC because it accepts the one-China principle; the US, Japan, the European Union, and even the world all call Taiwan is Taiwan; only DPP alone carries ROC to challenge PRC. I really don’t understand, who does DPP/ROC represent? Taiwan, China, or both? Able, capable, can they do it?
Ceded in perpetuity by Shimonoseki Treaty
On April 17, 1895, due to China's defeat in the Sino-Japanese in 1894, China had to cede territory for compensation and seek peace. China and Japan signed the Shimonoseki Treaty. The Qing government in perpetuity ceded the full sovereignty of Formosa and the Pescadores to Japan. Article 5 of the treaty "After the agreement is approved and exchanged, within two years, the Japanese quasi-Chinese and the local people are willing to relocate, and those who are outside the locality will be allowed to sell all their industries and retreat. But after the limit expires, it has not yet Migrants should be regarded as Japanese subjects at their discretion." The general idea is that residents who are ceded in Taiwan’s territory can freely sell all their real estate and move. Two years after the ratification of the treaty, residents who remain in the place will be regarded as Japanese nationals; that is, the people of Taiwan and Penghu have a two-year selection period. It depends on returning to China to be a Manchu or staying as a Japanese. Since then, Taiwan has absolutely nothing to do with China's righteousness.
Taiwan remained belonged to Japan while ROC established
About 16 years after the Sino-Japanese War of 1894-1895, on October 10, 1911, the Manchurian Army and other forces in Wuchang, Wuhan, China, the mutiny that took place in Wuchang, Wuhan, evolved into the Wuchang Uprising, the beginning of the Revolution of 1911, it overthrew the Qing Dynasty, and China’s 2,000-year-old feudal monarchy was over and established the first republic in Chinese history, the ROC. It was formally declared established on January 1, 1912, but at that time Taiwan was still under Japanese rule.
Sun Yat-sen advocated Taiwan independence
In 1925, the founder of ROC, Sun Yat-sen, advocated during his lifetime: Taiwan and Korea should at least implement autonomy, and each should establish its own parliament and self-governing government. On January 13, 1926, the National Congress of the KMT stated that Taiwan’s national revolution advocated that Taiwan, Vietnam, Korea, and the Philippines should all be independent. At the National Congress of the KMT on April 1, 1938, Chiang Kai-shek also agreed with Sun Yat-sen's wish for Taiwan's independence. It is believed that Taiwan’s independence contributes to China’s stability and peace in East Asia.
Taiwanese Communist Party Supported Independent action
In 1928, Taiwanese left-wingers such as Hsieh Chei-hong and Lin Mushun established the Communist Party of Taiwan in the French Concession of Shanghai on April 15. Articles 2 and 3 of the party’s bylaw stated that "long live the independence of the people of Taiwan" and "establish the Republic of Taiwan." On July 16, 1936, Mao Zedong told the American scholar Edgar Snow, "If the Korean people want to break free from the yoke of the Japanese imperialists, we will enthusiastically support them in their fight for independence. This also applies to Taiwan."
The CCP supported Taiwan independence
In June 1941, Zhou Enlai clearly stated in the article "National Supreme and State Supreme" that China should not only pursue its own independence, but also support the independence and liberation movements of other nation-states. These movements include the anti-Japanese movement in Korea and Taiwan, the anti-German and Italy aggression in the Balkans and African nation-states, and the national independence movement in India and Southeast Asia.
Repeal of the unequal treaty does not include cession of land
On December 7, 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor in the US, and the Pacific War broke out. On December 9, 1941, the ROC officially declared war on Japan. In 1942, the National Government announced on its own that all unequal treaties were abolished, with the exception of the cession of land compensation. The US announced on October 10 of the same year that it would negotiate to abolish the unequal treaties signed between the US and China, and all other extraterritorial rights, privileges, and concessions. The so-called abolition of unequal treaties does not include land cessation and indemnities. Any territorial transfer must be confirmed by signing a peace treaty.
Cairo meeting did not reach consensus
On December 1, 1943, Cairo Radio broadcasted the press release of Roosevelt, Churchill, and Chiang Kai-shek at the Cairo Conference, commonly known as the Cairo Declaration. Chiang Kai-shek asked Japan to return all the territories stolen from China, such as Manchuria, Taiwan, and the Penghu Islands, to the ROC. Since the meeting did not reach a consensus, no one signed a confirmation endorsement.
The Emperor's Edict is annulled
Law No. 34 (Law No. 34 of Showa 20), passed by the House of Representatives on March 17, 1945 and promulgated on April 1, is officially called "The Law on the Election of Members of the House of Representatives." Based on the assimilation of customs in Taiwan and Korea, it is no different from the mainland, and on the grounds of carrying out jihad, it is decided to give the residents of Taiwan and Korea the right to participate in national politics (Japanese politics). The bill stipulates that the House of Representatives allocate 28 seats to these two places. Among them, Korea occupies 23 seats and Taiwan occupies 5 seats, and emphasized that its rights are fully consistent with those of the representatives of the Japanese mainland. A few days after the law, the edict, and the "Edict" were announced in the Tokyo air raid, the Japanese government, which showed its defeat in WWII, declared its unconditional surrender before it had time to hold the relevant elections in accordance with the new law. In the year following the end of the war, the Showa 21 Law No. 8, the House of Representatives passed the "Showa 20 Law No. 34 (Partial Repeal of the Law on the Election of Members of the House of Representatives)."
CKS did not attend the Potsdam Conference
On July 26, 1945, the heads of state of the US, Britain and the Soviet Union discussed how to deal with Japan's territorial issues after the Pacific War ended in Potsdam. The meeting reached a resolution and signed the Potsdam Declaration. Article 8 of the Declaration: "The provisions of the Cairo Declaration shall be implemented, and Japanese sovereignty shall be limited to Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, Shikoku, and other small islands as determined by us." Chiang Kai-shek did not attend the Potsdam Conference, so the agenda didn’t mention of Taiwan and Penghu. The document was signed by telegram. Although Stalin attended the summit, the Soviet Union did not declare war on Japan until August 8, 1945, so the signing was added after the meeting. The purpose of the Potsdam Declaration is to plan the territorial scope of Japan after the war without any authorization to transfer the territorial sovereignty of Taiwan and Penghu.
General Order #1 Military Occupation
On August 15, 1945, the Empire of Japan announced its unconditional surrender, and on September 2 of the same year held a surrender ceremony and formally signed the letter of surrender. MacArthur, the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, issued the General Order #1, appointing the emperor of Japan to order the Japanese high-ranking commanders in China (except Manchuria), Taiwan and French Indochina north of the 16th latitude, as well as all land, navy, air force and auxiliary forces should surrender to General Chiang Kai-shek. Taiwan thus began a long period of military rule, and it has not yet announced its termination.
Misleading the military occupation into sovereignty transfer
Reluctantly, the Chiang Kai-shek government interpreted military occupation as a grant of sovereignty. On January 12, 1946, the ROC changed the Japanese nationality of Taiwanese to the nationality of the ROC before the conclusion of the peace treaty. Then Chen Yi, the then chief executive of Taiwan Province, suddenly issued an order in February that he was scheduled to start conscription in Taiwan in September 1946 and recruit Taiwanese youths to China to join the Chinese army and fight the Chinese civil war. These are all acts of international war crime and cannot be tolerated by law.
Mao Zedong praised Taiwan's independence
In 1947, the February 28th Massacre broke out in Taiwan. The CCP’s "Liberation Daily" also published a statement "supporting Taiwan's independence" on March 8. Mao Zedong’s radio speech in Yuan Ann said: “Our armed forces led by the CCP fully support the people of Taiwan and oppose the struggle against CKS and the KMT. We are for Taiwan’s independence, and we are for Taiwan’s own establishment a country they want. "
CKS scolded Chen Cheng Taiwan is a trust territory
After WWII, China has never possessed Taiwan's territorial sovereignty. It is a fact that known to the world. On January 12, 1949, CKS in response to Chen Cheng's improper speech saying "Taiwan is a fortress for the suppression of communism" in a press conference, issued a statement reprimanding: "Taiwan governor Chen (Cheng). Yesterday's telegram you had received and read. And I learned from newspaper of your important comrades caused condemned that let me speechless. Moreover, I heard that my brother’s many claims to He Haoruo belonged to him to convey to his comrades in Beijing. This style is still the same in the past, and there is no reflexiveness. The meaning of reforming is especially dangerous. If you fail to reflect on such a big failure after the major lessons in the past, you will not take into account your own situation. Not only can you not become a politician, but it will also make you sad and desperate. Also. You must know when, where and what is Taiwan today, we can still let us be brazen and presumptuously speak out like in the past. Taiwan’s legal status and sovereignty, before the peace conference with Japan, are the nature of our country as a trusteeship, how can we make it clear as the last fortress of the suppression of the Communist Party and the basis for national rejuvenation, wouldn't it make people with a little common sense at home and abroad laugh at it as madness. From now on, don’t make your own claims and show more of the limelight, and most should take the central’s propositions as your propositions. If what you say in the press conference is completely contrary to the central government’s proclamation, people at home and abroad feel inexplicable towards their younger brother. I hope you bury head and work hard, think about self-blame, and avoid being jealous and avoid being accused by others, then it is a blessing to the nation. Hand screwdriver
CCP/PRC established SKS/ROC exiled
On October 1, 1949, Mao Zedong won the Chinese Civil War and declared the establishment of PRC. CKS stepped down as early as January 21, and the government of ROC announced the move to Taipei on December 7. At that time, Taiwan was still Japanese territory, so the ROC in the international community has become a substantial government in exile, because there is no legitimate people, territory, sovereignty, and a government recognized by the international community.
The Korean War breaks out and the position is uncertain
On June 25, 1950, the Korean War broke out. US President Truman issued a declaration on June 27, "The attack upon Korea makes it plain beyond all doubt that communism has passed beyond the use of subversion to conquer independent nations and will now use armed invasion and war. It has defied the orders of the Security Council of the United Nations issued to preserve international peace and security. In these circumstances the occupation of Formosa by Communist forces would be a direct threat to the security of the Pacific area and to United States forces performing their lawful and necessary functions in that area. Accordingly, I have ordered the 7th Fleet to prevent any attack on Formosa. As a corollary of this action, I am calling upon the Chinese Government on Formosa to cease all air and sea operations against the mainland. The 7th Fleet will see that this is done. The determination of the future status of Formosa must await the restoration of security in the Pacific, a peace settlement with Japan, or consideration by the United Nations.” This is the source of Taiwan’s undetermined status.
UN Security Council Taiwan is not part of China
On June 26, 1950, the Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the PRC Zhou Enlai called Trygve Lie, then Secretary-General of the UN, accusing the US of "violating the UN Charter and invading Chinese territory (referring to Taiwan)" and appointing Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Wu Xiuquan as a plenipotentiary representative. The accusation that the UN operates the "American armed invasion of Taiwan" was rejected by a vote of 9 to 1 at the 530th Security Council meeting on November 30, 1950, giving China and the international community a very clear answer. On that day, Tsiang Tingfu, the ambassador of the ROC to the UN, also voted against the accusation against Wu Xiuquan. This is the official judgment of the UN "Taiwan does not belong to China" is a public record of the conclusion of the case after public discussions in the international community.
SFPT specified Taiwan status after WWII
On September 5, 1951, Dulles delivered a speech to all the representatives of the countries participating in the San Francisco Peace Conference. He explained the reason why the Pacific War Peace Conference was delayed for six years before convening: “Unhappily, civil war within China and the attitudes of the Allied Governments have created a situation such that there is not general international agreement upon a single Chinese voice with both the right and the power to bind the Chinese nation to terms of peace. Some think that one government meets these tests. Some think another meets them. Some doubt that either, meets them. No majority can be found for any present action regarding China. Thus, the Allies were faced with hard choices. They could defer any peace with Japan until they could agree that there was in China a government possessed of both legitimacy and authority. It would, however, be wrong, cruel, and stupid to penalize Japan because there is civil war in China and international disagreement regarding China. As another approach, each Allied Power could refuse to sign a treaty of peace with Japan unless a Chinese government of its choice was cosigner with it. That, we ascertained, would leave Japan at war with so many Allied Powers that Japan would get only a small measure of the peace she has earned. Indeed, there is no reason to believe that Japan, an essential party, would willingly cooperate in a program leading to that end. To exert compulsion in this matter would create resentment in Japan, and it would activate and aggravate Allied division in the face of a grave world-wide menace which requires maximum unity. The remaining choice was for the Allied Powers generally to proceed to conclude peace without any present Chinese co-signature, leaving China and Japan to make their own peace, on terms, however, which would guarantee full protection of the rights and interests of China.”
The final Protocol not reached Shimonoseki Treaty
The San Francisco Peace Treaty was formally signed on September 8, 1951. This is a joint resolution of the international community. It regulated Taiwan's political and legal status and direction after the Second World War. Article 2a of the Peace Treaty: Japan renounces all right, title and claim to Formosa and the Pescadores. Article 23 authorizes the US as the principal occupying power. Article 4(a):Subject to the provisions of paragraph (b) of this Article, the disposition of property of Japan and of its nationals in the areas referred to in Article 2, and their claims, including debts, against the authorities presently administering such areas and the residents (including juridical persons) thereof, and the disposition in Japan of property of such authorities and residents, and of claims, including debts, of such authorities and residents against Japan and its nationals, shall be the subject of special arrangements between Japan and such authorities. (b) Japan recognizes the validity of dispositions of property of Japan and Japanese nationals made by or pursuant to directives of the United States Military Government in any of the areas referred to in Articles 2 and 3. Article 10 Japan renounces all special rights and interests in China, including all benefits and privileges resulting from the provisions of the final Protocol signed at Peking on 7 September 1901, and all annexes, notes and documents supplementary thereto, and agrees to the abrogation in respect to Japan of the said protocol, annexes, notes and documents.
Taipei Treaty does not involve sovereignty
SFPT Article 26 authorizes Japan to sign a sub-peace and a bilateral peace treaty with the ROC on the basis of the substantively identical conditions of the San Francisco Peace Treaty. This is the Taipei Treaty, which is the source of the so-called Sino-Japanese Peace Treaty. Remember, the sub-treaty certainly cannot be self-propelled, beyond the authorization of the head-treaty. The San Francisco Treaty was signed on September 8, 1951 and entered into force on April 28, 1952, while the Taipei Treaty was signed on April 28, 1952 and entered into force on August 5, 1952. Some experts, scholars, and professors said that Japan transferred Taiwan’s sovereignty to China thru the Taipei Treaty is a real joke. Imagine that when the San Francisco Peace Treaty came into effect, Japan had already lost all the right, title and claim to Taiwan and Penghu already. Is there still a right to grant Taiwan and Penghu sovereignty to ROC? Really genius and whimsical. The Taipei Treaty clearly stated that it aimed to terminate the war between Japan and ROC. (Article 1). And did not grant sovereignty over Taiwan and Penghu to the ROC (Article 2). Japan waived all its privileges in China and the so-called unequal treaties retroacted to the final Protocol signed at Peking on 7 September 1901. It did not touch the Treaty of Shimonoseki in 1895 (Article 5), and the treaty was annulled on September 29, 1972.
SFPT authorized USMG to secure Taiwan
According to the authorization of the San Francisco Peace Treaty in 1952, the US government enacted many bills: 1954 Joint Defense Treaty, 1979 Taiwan Relations Act, 1982 Six Guarantees, 2018 Taiwan Travel Act, Asia Reassurance Initiative Act, Taiwan Security Enhancement Act, Taiwan International Participation Act , Taiwan AIA International Protection and Strengthening Initiative Act to protect Taiwan’s social stability, economic prosperity, national defense security, freedom of life, and political democracy. The United States’ stand and actions in defending Taiwan are consistent and never changed. The Taiwan International Solidarity Act proposed on April 19 stated that UN Resolution 2578 only deals with the issue of Chinese representation and does not involve Taiwan.
Defense Treaty to Defend Taiwan and Penghu
On December 2, 1954, the Republic of China and the United States signed the Mutual Defense Treaty Between the US and the ROC in Washington, with a total of ten articles, which came into effect on March 3, 1955. Article 6 of the treaty clearly states: For the Republic of China, the so-called "territory" and "territory" refer to Taiwan and the Penghu Islands, and the United States of America refers to the territories of the Western Pacific under its jurisdiction. The provisions of Articles 2 and 5 also apply to other areas determined by mutual consent. The terms "territorial" and "territories" shall mean in respect of the ROC, Taiwan and the Pescadores; and in respect of the USA, the island territories in the West Pacific under its jurisdiction. The provisions of Articles II and V will be applicable to such other territories as may be determined by mutual agreement. The treaty was formally notified to the ROC by the United States, and it was terminated and invalidated on January 1, 1980, Taiwan time.
The UN Resolution #2758 does not relate to Taiwan
Resolution 2758 adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on October 25, 1971: "Decides to restore all rights of the PRC, recognize her government representative as the only legal representative of China in the UN, and immediately remove Chiang Kai-shek’s representative from It is expelled from the seats illegally occupied in the UN organization and all its affiliated institutions.” Therefore, since the passage of UN Resolution 2758, the affairs of anyone represented ROC will be automatically succeeded by PRC. However, whether it is the Taipei Treaty between Japan and the ROC or the Joint Communiqué on the establishment of diplomatic relations between Japan and PRC, the territorial part of Taiwan involved is in compliance with the authorization of Article 26 of the San Francisco Peace Treaty. It does not treat Taiwan’s territorial sovereignty. Awarded to ROC or PRC. Taiwan is not part of the Chinese territory. Taiwan is not an indivisible and inherent territory of China or Japan at all. The judge of the Japanese High Court said that Taiwan and Penghu are not inherent, but the territory of Japan obtained from the Shimonoseki Treaty, but in the San Francisco Treaty and the Taipei Treaty China has given up. In fact, since 1662, Taiwan has been ceded by the Netherlands, Zheng, Qing, and Japan many times. Now is the time for Taiwan to face up to history.
The U.S. derecognized ROC and only recognizes Taiwan
On April 10, 1979, US President Carter signed the Taiwan Relation Act passed by the House of Representatives and the Senate. The full text contains 18 articles, which came into effect on January 1, 1979. Article 15: The term "Taiwan" will include Taiwan and the Penghu Islands as appropriate, as well as the people, companies, and other groups and institutions established or formed under the laws applicable to these islands, January 1, 1979 Before Japan, the United States recognized as the Taiwan governance authority of the Republic of China, as well as any succeeding governance authorities (including political branches, institutions, etc.). The bill clearly states that since January 1, 1979, the US no longer recognizes the ROC, but only recognizes the governing authority on Taiwan.
Tokyo High Court judged the Japanese nationality lost
On June 12, 1980, Judge Yoshida of the Tokyo High Court stated in Lim King-Bing v. Japan’s judgment that: There is a clause in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that “no one shall be deprived of his nationality arbitrarily and his right to change his nationality shall be denied.” Article 15 (2)>. "No one should be deprived of his nationality arbitrarily", which is properly interpreted as "No one should be deprived of his nationality without justification and due process." Interpreting "arbitrary" as a one-sided country is too serious and narrow
. As mentioned above, Taiwanese lost their Japanese nationality because of the cession of territories after the war, which was accompanied by a change of nationality. The change of nationality, which leads to the cession of territory, is usually provided explicitly or implicitly by a treaty. Therefore, it should be interpreted as an arbitrary deprivation of nationality for the purpose of human rights in the world, which does not prohibit a comprehensive change of nationality. Therefore, the loss of Japanese nationality by the Taiwanese in the peace treaty between Japan and the Republic of China in accordance with due process and justified reasons does not violate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. "For details of the case of Taiwan residents' loss of Japanese nationality judged by the Japanese High Court, please refer to the Japan International Law Yearbook, 1982, Volume 25, page 177 (6)."
ROC an undecided issue
On October 25, 2004, former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell said: "There is only one China. Taiwan is not independent. It does not enjoy sovereignty as a nation, and it remains our policy, our firm policy." August 2007 On the 30th, Dennis Wilder, former National Security Council (NSC) Senior Director for Asian Affairs said: "Taiwan, or the Republic of China, is not at this point a state in the international community. The position of the United States government is that the ROC -- Republic of China -- is an issue undecided, and it has been left undecided, as you know, for many, many years."
The anti-secession law has no legal basis
On March 14, 2005, at the Third Session of the Tenth National People’s Congress of the PRC, a basic law of the PRC on cross-strait relations, the so-called Anti-Secession Law, was passed. Adopted on the same day and announced to take effect. Article 2 of the law: There is only one China in the world, the mainland and Taiwan belong to one China, and China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are indivisible. Safeguarding national sovereignty and territorial integrity is the common obligation of all Chinese people, including Taiwan compatriots. Taiwan is part of China. The country will never allow Taiwan independence separatist forces to separate Taiwan from China in any name or in any way. The problem is that Taiwan was ceded out as early as 1895, but China was founded in 1912, and ROC was inherited by PRC in 1949. In China's lifetime, Taiwan has never been a part of China.
UN Secretary Ban took back his words
On July 27, 2007, the former Secretary-General of the UN, Ban Ki-moon said when asked by the media about the "Taiwan’s application to join the UN": "The membership of the UN shall be determined by the member states of the UN. The position of the UN is based on the UN General Assembly Resolution 2758. PRC is the only government that legally represents the whole of China, and the UN recognizes that Taiwan is part of China." Ban’s statement immediately suffered protests from the US, Japan, Canada, the European Union and other international communities. On August 16, 2007, the U.S. Representative Office issued a telegram confirming that after Ban Ki-moon discussed with the U.S. Ambassador to the UN Zalmay Khalizad on issues such as the UN wording on Taiwan’s status, Ban Ki-moon said that his recent public speeches were overstatement and promised no more use the phrase "Taiwan is part of China".
The US federal court ruled that Taiwan is stateless
On March 18, 2008, the US District Court Judge Rosemary M Collyer stated in the judgment of Lin v. USA: Plaintiffs have essentially been persons without a state for almost 60 years. The last completely clear statement of authority over Taiwan came from General MacArthur
in 1945. One can understand and sympathize with Plaintiffs’ desire to regularize their position in the world. That Plaintiffs remain in an international limbo is not, however, because they have been ignored by the United States or the rest of the world.
The political purgatory is not a nation yet
On April 7, 2009, the U.S. Federal Court of Appeals, the Circuit Judge of the District of Columbia Circuit, Brown, stated in the Lin v. U.S. appeal case: America and China’s tumultuous relationship over the past sixty years has trapped the inhabitants of Taiwan in political purgatory. During this time the people on Taiwan have lived without any uniformly recognized government. In practical terms, this means they have uncertain status in the world community which infects the population’s day-to-day lives.
Taiwan was never part of China
The circuit judge of the US Federal Court informed the world in black and white that the people of Taiwan do not have a nationality that is publicly recognized by the world. Nowadays, Taiwanese take the passport of the ROC. The PRC says that ROC was inherited by PRC on October 25, 1971, but China, neither ROC nor PRC, has never owned Taiwan’s territorial sovereignty. It is the blind spot and helplessness of Taiwan today. November 12, 2020, then Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Taiwan has never been a part of China. On March 15, 2021, US Department of Defense officials said that Taiwan was never part of China since ancient times. China is not the sovereign state of Taiwan.
Defines Taiwan’s Territorial sovereignty
On April 25, 2021, President Tsai Ing-wen delivered a speech at the "Global Taiwan Affairs Symposium" organized by the Taiwan Nation Alliance that the government's consistent position is "national territory and sovereignty will never give up an inch; we persist in democracy and freedom." Vice President Lai Ching-te reiterated that Taiwan is a sovereign and independent country. Only the people of Taiwan have the right to decide the future of Taiwan, "it is our unchangeable proposition." This is a very ironic picture. At the advanced conference of the independence faction, a public statement was made that Taiwan, ROC, is a sovereign and independent country, and its sovereignty will not yield even one step. I don’t know when Taiwan became independent and when it was founded. When did ROC obtain Taiwan’s sovereignty? What’s the scope of its constitutional territory sovereignty? Why, why, why, why is it that a sovereign country cannot enter the UN or the World Health Organization?
Establish a nation step by step
Today Taiwan’s territorial sovereignty is not affiliated with any one China. It is indeed an "indisputable fact." Taiwan’s 23 million people have the right to self-determination and follow international legal procedures: ending the military occupation after WWII, establishing Taiwan’s civil government, and electing government representatives. , Declare territorial sovereignty to the principal occupying powers, strive for the recognition of the international community, and become a substantive territorial sovereign country before applying to join the UN and becoming a member of the international community with territorial sovereignty.
Taiwan is not the ROC
The ROC, currently ruling Taiwan, is not a sovereign country; it is just a government in exile. It is not always necessary to ask, when the US, Japan, China, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia all affirm that Taiwan is Taiwan, please can those in power in Taiwan be able to tell us why the DPP authorities insist on a China country? Is it ignorant, dare not, or is it another attempt that no one else knows, dreams to rule over China someday in the future?
