President Tsai's Remarks

President Tsai meets Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association Chairman Mitsuo Ohashi (excerpt: cross-strait relations)

  • Date:2020-01-12

In yesterday's presidential election, the people of Taiwan showed the world their determination to defend our nation's sovereignty and protect our democracy and freedom. In the future, Taiwan will continue to be democracy's first line of defense, actively cooperate with other like-minded countries, and continue our efforts to deepen democracy.

As a responsible member of the international community, for over three years, Taiwan has handled cross-strait relations by refusing to bow to pressure, and refraining from provocation or rash behavior, devoting our efforts to maintaining stability in the Taiwan Strait. In the future, we will continue to take this same approach and strengthen our partnerships with other nations in the region so that together, we can promote regional prosperity and development.
