The Taiwan issue - The US doesn't care about peace

Last night, the third highest official of the world hegemon, the USA, Nancy Pelosi landed in the Chinese province of Taiwan under the cover of night. Slovakia and the Czech Republic, the USA and the UN officially recognize the policy of one China - that is, that Taiwan and mainland China are one indivisible state. This visit, seen from the American side as a visit to an independent Taiwan, is a gross violation of this globally recognized principle. The Taiwanese public and diplomacy are protesting against the visit.

Taiwan was part of the Chinese state until the 1940s, or 1950s, when during the civil war it became the last bastion of the losing Kuomintang (KMT). The KMT was supported by the American nuclear superpower at least until the 1970s, which, in order to avoid a nuclear conflict, is why the People's Republic of China did not conquer Taiwan. Nevertheless, since the 1970s, Taiwan has been considered part of mainland China by the US and the Slovak Republic.

China has repeatedly made it clear where the limits are, within which it is willing to act amicably with the declining power of the USA. The United States chose to act contrary to this mutual understanding. China has a legitimate claim to the stronghold of the reactionary Kuomintang, and any response will be expected and justified, even under international law. The United States has consciously decided to escalate the situation - even if it is not an "official visit", Pelosi is still the 3rd highest ranking official of the US.

It is clear that the goal of the United States, a dying power, is not peace. They may hide their interests behind words about democracy and freedom, but in reality it is only about maintaining their waning influence in the region. The movement hereby wishes to express its full support for the Five Principles for Peaceful Coexistence, which are the basis of Chinese and Indian foreign policy, and which China considers to be the basis of its global and international peace policy. These principles are:

  1. mutual respect for each other's territorial integrity and sovereignty
  2. mutual non aggression
  3. mutual non-interference in each other's internal affairs
  4. equality and co-operation for mutual benefit
  5. peaceful co-existence

Only these principles can ensure a stable and peaceful international situation and the development of an independent domestic policy. Only these principles guarantee the certainty that the whole world so desperately needs.

We are committed to upholding these principles. We reject foreign and open aggression. We refuse to threaten the interests of the sovereign people. We reject the instability promoted by the United States. And in this case, we fully support the official position of the government of the Slovak Republic.
