 Cai Yingwens Taiwanese-Japanese Security Dialogue sign was satirized as barking at the train

Ten days after receiving an interview with American media, Tsai Ying, Taiwans regional leader, brushed a sense of existence on the international media. Japans right-wing media Shimbun Shimbun published an interview with her on the 2nd. This time, Cai Yingwens big story is that he hopes to have a security dialogue with the Japanese government, including sharing real-time information such as PLA trends. This is the first time that a request has been made as a leader of the Taiwan region, which means that there is no diplomatic channel between Taiwan and Japan, but only through indirect means of dialogue. In the opinion of public opinion on the island, this is just Cai Yingyings empty cheque to the voters in order to seize the right to speak. Taiwanese newspaper Lianhe Bao commented that Cai Yingyings argument of joining Japan against the mainland was undoubtedly just barking at trains in consideration of Japans own interests. Up to the deadline of the 3rd evening, the Japanese government had not yet responded to Cais proposal. Some Japanese netizens advised that Japan-China relations have not been easy to get back on track, Xiao Ying will not come out to make trouble again at this time.

Cai Yingwen was interviewed by Japanese media after the commemoration ceremony of 228 Incident. The interview was published on the front page, the sixth and the seventh editions of the Maternal Economics News on the 2nd day, according to the Green Camp Media Liberty Times. However, Global Times reporter 3 days search found that, in addition to individual small media reprints, there is no follow-up report of mainstream Japanese media.

In the interview, Cai Yingwen first expressed his goodwill to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, praised his decisive leadership and made many important decisions to break the current situation in strengthening Taiwan-Japan relations. Its very good for Taiwan. In order to highlight the close relationship, Lo Fuquan, the representative of the Taiwan Economic and Cultural Office in Japan, presented a photo of Abe and Japanese Cabinet Chief Cabinet Secretary Kan Yiwei with Cai Yingwen during their visit to Taiwan in 2011 for publication in Maternal Economics News. After wearing Abes high hat, Cai Yingwen shouted directly to him that he hoped that the next stage of Taiwan and Japan would not only strengthen economic and trade affairs, but also enhance the level of security cooperation dialogue.

There is no diplomatic relationship between Japan and Taiwan, and the security dialogue between Japan and Taiwan is currently confined to the civilian and academic levels. Cai stressed that Taiwan and Japan in East Asia are facing the same threat and it is very important to share real-time information and looked forward to Japan overcoming legal obstacles. She said that the format of the security dialogue respects Japans ideas, including information on the trends of the mainland military. In addition to traditional military issues, we also hope to exchange views on new security threats such as cyber warfare.

What legal barriers does Cai want Japan to overcome? Japan has no domestic law like the Taiwan Relations Act of the United States, Shimbun said. Taiwans Key Review Network quoted analysts as saying that although Cai did not speak clearly, the most likely legal obstacle was a Chinese policy. At present, the relationship between Japan and Taiwan as defined by the Japanese government is a non-governmental pragmatic relationship.

In the interview, Cai also expressed her expectations for the future Taiwan-US Summit with the US President. However, she did not answer positively whether she was invited to address the US Congress and take the opportunity to talk with Trump.

Last month, Cai Yingwen, in an interview with CNN, announced that he would take part in Taiwans general election in 2020, while lamenting the military threat of the mainland to Taiwan. Taiwanese newspaper Lianhe Daily quoted foreign-related people as saying that this interview with Japanese media was Cai Yings voice for Taiwan series of work. According to the person, this is the first time that Cai Yingwen has fully expounded Taiwans importance in the international order at this stage. After the report was published, Cai Yingwen posted four consecutive photos on Facebook on the evening of the 2nd, saying that he hoped that the international community would understand the importance of Taiwans existence.

Zhu Songling, director of the Institute of Cross-Strait Relations at the Taiwan Research Institute of Beijing United University, told the Global Times Wednesday that this was Cai Yingwens first interview with foreign media after announcing his candidacy. It can be seen that she demonstrates her internal and external policies in a planned and systematic way, creates grief, solicits support from the international community and confronts the historical trend of peaceful reunification of the country. This is Cai Englishs usual trick.
