Overseas Network, Dec. 18, Xinhua Cai English authorities took office two years ago, five countries have announced the break off with Taiwan. As Taiwans only friend in Europe, the Vatican attaches great importance to it. Yesterday, on the occasion of the Popes birthday, Cai Yingwen rushed to invite him to visit Taiwan. However, Cai Yingwens action was described by netizens as putting a hot face on a cold buttock. Hong Kongs China Evaluation Agency believes that the relationship between Taiwan and Sanskrit has been rocking.
According to Taiwans Central News Agency, Pope Franciss 82nd birthday was celebrated on the 17th. Taiwans leader, Cai Yingwen, rushed to call. While wishing him his birthday, he did not miss any opportunity to protect friendly countries and invited the Pope to visit Taiwan.
Netizens on the island cant help laughing at Cai Ying. The Pope doesnt know who she is. When he picks up the phone, he asks, Who are you, who are you? World Super Joke! Who is she? Some netizens also think that Cai Yingwen took hot face to paste cold buttocks and said frankly that the Pope would not come not disgraceful? No invitation.
It has long been common for Taiwans gracious invitation to receive a cold response from the Vatican. In October, Vice-Leader Chen Jianren of Taiwan participated in the feudal ceremony of Pre-Paul VI and invited him to visit Taiwan when he saw Francis at different times before the feudal ceremony. The Vatican has rushed to clear up the issue, and the head of the Vaticans press office, Burke, said that the visit to Taiwan was not planned at present. Nevertheless, the Taiwanese authorities have not given up their hearts, declaring that they will continue to invite visitors in the future, hoping that the Holy See can plan the arrangements.
On the same day Cai called, Wu Zhaoxie, the foreign minister of the Taiwan authorities, responded to Taiwans legislature by saying that the relationship between Taiwan and the Holy See was not a problem for a short time. Not long ago, Wu Zhaoxie also vowed to say that the relationship with 17 friendly countries is stable without any urgent situation, and in less than three months, he added the word short-term before no problem. According to the analysis of the Hong Kong medias China Evaluation Agency, Wu Zhaoxie did not claim that the relations between Taiwan and Sanskrit were stable, but that there was no problem in the short term. Obviously, he was not optimistic about the relations between Taiwan and Sanskrit and lacked confidence. Previously, Chen Jianren was complacent because he smiled at him, but as the netizens on the island said, the Popes laugh which Chen Jianren regarded as straw for life was probably just to prepare for the break-up with apologetic greetings.
As the mainland and the Vatican get closer, the relationship between Taiwan and Vatican is rocking. According to the official website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on September 22, 2018, Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Wang Chao held talks with the head of the Vatican delegation and Vice Minister of Relations of the Holy See in Beijing, and signed an interim agreement on the appointment of bishops. Geng Shuang, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said previously that China and Brazil have maintained effective contacts and that China has always been sincere in improving Sino-Brazilian relations and has made unremitting efforts to this end.
Since Cai took office for two years, five countries have declared that they have broken ties with Taiwan, and Taiwans friends have dropped to 17. Hong Kongs China Evaluation Society believes that in this context, the Taiwan side is vigilant and vigilant in any foreign affairs. Once the Vatican is lost, the domino effect of break-up will be further expanded. Earlier, Taiwans representative to the Vatican, Dai Ruiming, said in an interview that the Vatican also has political influence in Central and South American countries. If relations between Taiwan and the Vatican change, it may also have an indirect impact on friends in Central and South America.
In response to the break-up of diplomatic relations between more and more countries and Taiwan, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has repeatedly stated that this reflects the one-China principle generally adhered to by the international community and is also a correct decision made in conformity with the international situation. China has always been committed to developing friendly and cooperative relations with other countries in the world on the basis of adhering to the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence and the One China Principle. We should not be surprised that a country that can conform to the trend of the times, the international trend and adhere to the one-China principle should establish diplomatic relations with China in the future.
