Two days ago, Burkina Faso and Taiwan "diplomatic" cloth become this month 2 and Taiwan "diplomatic", 4 "allies since it is Cai Yingwen came to Taiwan". Taiwan cloth or "allies" in the country with the largest population, the population is more than 2000 million, 27 million square kilometers of land area. In the cloth and Taiwan "diplomatic", Swaziland became the only African allies "".
"Allies" series of "off" to bring the impact of the Taiwan authorities once again to. The cloth and the Taiwan "diplomatic", "foreign minister" Wu Zhaoxie was asked to resign, because he is a "foreign minister" when really too shameful. Cai Yingwen on Thursday issued a statement to enumerate the mainland recently on Taiwan's "diplomatic pressure", said, do show "anxiety and lack of confidence," said it had held "will only make Taiwan partnership with the international community more closely".
The United States was also up to the Taiwan authorities chimed in. In addition to several members: roughly guess attacking the Beijing speech, the U.S. State Department in a pro Taiwan Chinese media email reply that "Chinese is changing the status quo".
There is no doubt that if the Cai Yingwen administration continues to reject the "92 consensus" and a Chinese, "allies" and Taiwan's "diplomatic relations" the tide will continue until the Taiwan "diplomatic" shaved "allies", one is not left.
Cai Yingwen in his statement, his accusations "playing money diplomacy" buy Taiwan "allies", but this type of vent Cai young cynic precisely reflects the experience and the pattern, the Taiwan authorities are stuck in the old age, their performance limits are not stream of live.
Buy "allies", "dollar diplomacy", this is the Taiwan authorities to fight, to prove that he is "state" and the crooked ways doings. Because of this, Taiwan's "allies" is basically a small poor, fully rely on money to maintain diplomatic relations "". Taiwan's "foreign" is not a diplomatic confrontation, but the deformity, is the use of fake and shoddy "diplomatic relations" flaunt their "sovereignty".
Beijing free and competitive power in the world of the establishment of diplomatic relations. All countries in the world and the main countries are China, the allies, which one is to spend money to buy? If and comprehensive cooperation in the overwhelming majority of African countries are voluntary and China, the development of diplomatic relations, then why Beijing to spend money to buy the remaining one or two?
Taiwan authorities just wake up from sleep, wondering what year is tonight. They naively believe that, to use and they spend the same amount of money, and even spend more money to keep the "allies" poach. They don't know, all "allies" Taiwan are considering abandon it, the establishment of diplomatic relations with the mainland China. Because a country not established diplomatic relations with People's Republic of China in this era is eccentric, means self marginalization, the money to Taiwan has been more and more comprehensive for those countries with China, lose no diplomatic relations caused by.
In 1994 by the Taiwan "dollar diplomacy" captured, broke off diplomatic relations with Beijing, then Taiwan, GDP is about 42%, today this number is reduced to approximately 4%. Taiwan in Africa up to 11, and the "allies" in the cloth and the "diplomatic relations", its African "allies" only in Swaziland, but you can imagine, Adams will move on China express the idea of development.
Now in the non cooperation of Burkina Faso although Taiwan is like a raging fire, before the "allies", but the annual trade volume, and it is $200 million, trade with Taiwan only $8 million. What is Taiwan and mainland competition!
The Taiwan authorities don't flatter yourself. If it is to continue to promote the "covert independence" policy, then prepared following more "allies" and "off", it becomes zero "allies" that day is not far away.
