Adhering to One China Policy is Crucial for Trump

Does US President Donald Trump have in mind two Chinas; One China, One Taiwan; or Taiwanese independence? If the US abandons the One China policy before a peaceful Chinese reunification, the situation in East Asia will be unstable.

Stormy Weather Ahead for Taiwan’s Politics

The return of pro-independence DPP to power, large-scale protests against government reforms, a KMT in crisis and an unstable US-China-Taiwan relationship all point to a tougher year ahead for Taiwan.

Tillerson Goes Off Half-Cocked on China

On January 11, 2017, US President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for Secretary of State Rex Tillerson made several intemperate remarks. Most provocatively he said that China’s access to the features it has built up in the South China Sea is not going to be “allowed.”

Why Trump’s Great Bargain on Taiwan Won’t Work

Deciphering Tsai Ing-wen’s Next Moves

The call between Tsai and Trump has shattered the status quo. If Trump and his advisors still choose to not to understand China’s mind and heart, Beijing may have no choice but, for example, to establish diplomatic relations with those 21 countries which still support Taipei.

Taiwan: Trump’s Bargaining Chip in US-China Relations?

Since Taiwan remains China’s core interest, Trump’s motive of simply using Taiwan as leverage against China could be very difficult — if not dangerous — especially if he continues to disregard the One China policy.
