Exposing China’s lies on Taiwan

The Potsdam Declaration, also known as the Proclamation Defining Terms for Japanese Surrender, was issued on July 26, 1945, by then-US president Harry Truman, then-British prime minister Winston Churchill and then-Republic of China president Chiang Kai-shek (蔣介石) at the Potsdam Conference just outside Berlin, following Germany’s unconditional surrender nine weeks earlier.

High-ranking Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials have a history of using Potsdam during visits to Germany to bolster the party’s propaganda line on Taiwan.


Missile upgrades needed, engineer says

The Hsiung Feng III missile project’s former chief engineer, Chang Cheng (張誠), has said that the military needs to extend the altitude of the Tien Kung III air-defense missile to effectively counter any threats from China.


Developing a better defense system

China’s launching of missiles over Taiwan during military drills earlier this month was “irresponsible,” and something that must be contested, a senior US Navy official said on Tuesday.

“It’s very important that we contest this type of thing. If we just allow [missiles over Taiwan] to happen, and we don’t contest that, that’ll be the next norm,” US Seventh Fleet Commander Vice Admiral Karl Thomas said.


KMT betrays all its late presidents

Even before the smoke had cleared from the military exercises China conducted around Taiwan after US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited Taipei, the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) sent a delegation led by KMT Vice Chairman Andrew Hsia (夏立言) to China. Coinciding with Hsia’s visit, China’s Taiwan Affairs Office published a white paper titled The Taiwan Question and China’s Reunification in the New Era, in which it reiterated that China “will not renounce the use of force” and “Taiwan has never been a state; its status as part of China is unalterable.”

The KMT is like a chameleon. It changes color when dealing with the US, Japan, China and even Taiwan.

Lawmakers from Japan, Canada, Germany and the UK are planning trips to Taiwan in the next few months to show support amid heightened Chinese intimidation following US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taipei earlier this month.

Next to visit from Monday to Wednesday next week is a delegation from Japan’s parliament, Kyodo News reported on Tuesday.


Taiwan should abolish the ECFA

With China threatening waves of economic sanctions following US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan, whether to continue with the Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) or abolish it has once more become the subject of debate. The pact has held Taiwan back for so long, it is perhaps time to exhibit some economic resilience and move on.

The original objective of signing the agreement more than a decade ago was to set out the framework for economic activity between Taiwan and China, and iron out protocols in four areas: trade in goods, trade in services, investment guarantees and conflict resolution.

Groups protesting what they called high-level governmental officials’ lack of political responsibility toward an adulterated cooking oil scandal yesterday clashed with police in front of the Executive Yuan, while calling for both President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) and Premier Jiang Yi-huah (江宜樺) to step down.

Taiwan Adequate Housing Association president Huang Yi-chung (黃益中) said that the Executive Yuan’s plans to establish a food security office was “a joke” and the nation would be much better off if Jiang resigned from office.
