The Taiwanese internal dispute over Ma Ying-jeou’s statement
In a recent speech, former Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou mentioned that if China invaded Taiwan, fear that “The first battle is over.”. But on August 26, Ma Ying-jeou re-explained that it was a report submitted by the Taiwan Defense Ministry, not his statement. He just wanted to remind President Thai Anh Van to avoid a war, because it might be too late when the war breaks out …
In response to Ma Anh Cuu’s statement, at a regular press conference, Mr. Khau Thuy Chinh said that Mr. Ma Anh Cuu had approved the so-called “The first battle is over“To threaten Taiwan accept “Consent 1992“, Underestimated Taiwan’s strength and determination to protect national security.”
Mr. Khau Thuy Chinh emphasized that former President Ma Ying-jeou believes “Consent 1992“War can be avoided, but”Article 5 Xi Jinping ” of the CCP stated that “The 1992 consensus is the one China principle ”; “Consent 1992“Pursue unity, never accepted.” “One China, one table per person”, no space exists for the ROC (ie Taiwan). Currently 90% of the mainstream public opinion of Taiwan has firmly opposed “one country, two regimes ”, we believe that this issue is irreversible, the people of Taiwan must realize that the essence of the Taiwan Strait crisis lies in Beijing’s hegemonic expansion and its ambitions to invade Taiwan.
He argued that it was very dangerous for Mr. Ma Ying-jeou to question and condemn the actions of the Beijing government that fell into the political trap of the CCP Unification Front, which is very dangerous. The official Taiwanese public opinion firmly opposes “one country, two regimes”And Beijing’s attack on Taiwan. The Taiwanese government has also done a good job of national security and is ready to face challenges.
In this regard, on August 26, Chairman Giang Khai Than (Johnny Chiang) of the The Taiwan Nationalist Party also responded to the controversy in the “the first battle is over ”. Mr. Giang Khai Than saying that it is normal for a democratic society to question those in power, the responsibility of those in power to respond, and that those in power should not be deliberately stigmatized.
In response, in a press release on the evening of August 26, spokeswoman Nghiem Nhuom Phuong (Ruoh-Fang Yen) of the Taiwanese Communist Party said, when Mr. Jiang Khai Than took office as Chairman of the Nationalist Party. will promote Party reform and reconsider the issue of the two strait lines, but after receiving opposition from conservative seniors in the Party, such as former chairman Ma Anh Cuu, Lien Chan, Ngo Duy Nghia …, immediately change his attitude. In 2019, Chinese President Xi Jinping is clear “Consent 1992” is a China, that is to be eliminated “One country, two regimes“For Taiwan, but Mr. Jiang Khai Than supports Ma Anh Cuu’s proposal.
Ms. Nghiem Nhuoc Phuong said in June 2020, the “International Crisis Group” that Mr. Ma Anh Cuu loves issued a warning in the observation report, pointing out the real cause was the China’s military activity has increased dramatically, such as the growing number of provocative military aircraft around Taiwan, not only causing tension in the Taiwan Strait but openly sabotaging blatant stability of the area. Ma Ying-jeou and Jiang Khai Shen have ignored the fact that Beijing unilaterally undermines regional stability, they also do not want and dare not condemn, while criticizing the Taiwanese people’s steadfastness in protect sovereignty and democratic freedom. The act of siding with the international democratic trend not only gives the impression of “the Kuomintang is the inferior party to the CCP” in the international community, but also makes it even harder to gain mainstream public approval. system in Taiwanese society.
