A post-war view of Taiwan-US ties

By HoonTing 雲程

Unfortunately, China has become more uncontrollable as it disrupts the world order and it seems that there is no way to guide Beijing.

Not long ago, Kissinger in a roundabout way admitted that he had miscalculated the situation.

Over the years, the nation’s name has changed from the Taiwan Provincial Governor’s Office, to the Republic of China, to the Republic of China on Taiwan, to the Republic of China, Taiwan, and finally, to Taiwan.

In the context of post-war political reconstruction, this is no different from “the governing authorities on Taiwan” referred in the Taiwan Relations Act.

Will Taiwan and the US establish formal diplomatic ties modeled on the Compact of Free Association, or will the US support Taiwan’s enactment of a new basic law of governance in accordance with today’s circumstances?

If our perspective changes to one aiming for “political reconstruction” in the post-war era, both options are possible.
