駐英代表處投書《金融時報》呼籲國際不應放任中國霸凌外企,對台灣施壓

針對中國近來施壓各國航空公司要求更改台灣名稱,駐英代表處7月2日以「不應放任中國霸凌及擺佈」為題投書英國《金融時報》,呼籲國際社會不應放任中國霸凌及擺佈外企,對台灣施壓。

針對中國駐英國大使館曾嶸近日投書《金融時報》所指,台灣在各航空公司的稱呼是關乎中國主權與領土完整之原則,駐英代表處新聞組副組長徐郁喬投書表示,曾嶸投書所指「一中」原則是中國自己的原則和意識形態,不應放任中國操控國際企業的自由營運,並施壓外國企業必須採用他們的原則和意識形態。

投書更指出,中國針對台灣稱呼一事向航空公司施壓,也等同執行對國際企業的專制審查。這樣的行為反映出一個令人擔憂的趨勢,國際社會應該高度警惕,也就是中國正在利用商業和經濟優勢威脅私有企業,並在國際上強制輸出他們的政治立場。

她呼籲,國際社會應該體認到此問題,特別是民主國家,並堅定地與台灣並肩反制,以免為時已晚。台灣站在民主國家與威權中國的戰爭前線,如果台灣失敗,民主制度和價值將受到損害。

 

以下為投書全文:

Do not allow China to bully and dictate

 

The principle that Zheng Rong (Letters, June 28) mentions is China’s principle and ideology, and China should not be allowed to dictate the free operations of international business and bully foreign enterprises into adopting its own principle and ideology.

Beijing’s exerting pressure on airlines on Taiwan’s designation is also executing its authoritarian censorship among international enterprises. Such behaviour represents a worrying trend that the international community should be highly wary of: China’s using its business and economic advantages to threaten the private sector and pursue its political agendas internationally.

The international community, democracies in particular, should recognise this problem and stand firm with Taiwan in countering this behaviour before it is too late. Taiwan is standing at the frontline of a campaign waged between democracies and authoritarian China. If Taiwan falls defeated, democratic institutions and values will be jeopardised.
