EU-Taiwan political relations and cooperation (debate)

The European Parliament discussed its first Taiwan report – this has historic significance. We assure our strategic solidarity to Taiwan’s democracy. We want to support stability and peace and self-determination in this region, against Beijing’s aggression. That is why we are against unilateral changes in the Taiwan Strait.

Commission Vice President Vestager also spoke a clear language in the Taiwan debate. It would be good if her positions were common knowledge in the European capitals, including Berlin. Such unity on a China policy issue as was expressed in the Taiwan debate has not often been seen in the European Parliament. Now it is up to the member states.
