My Question for David Miliband


Learn more about the Avaaz/Miliband event at Chatham House in London in my previous post.

Hi, my name is Lee-Sean and I am from Taiwan, one of the most robust democracies in Asia, and a major trade partner with the European Union and the United States. However, due to diplomatic bullying and intimidation on the part of the People’s Republic of China, only a handful of countries have formal diplomatic ties with Taiwan and the more than 22 million people in Taiwan no longer have a voice in international organizations like the UN or the World Health Organization.

Why doesn’t the UK have official diplomatic ties with Taiwan and treat Taiwan as an independent country? And why not urge the Chinese government in Beijing to plan peace talks with Taiwan, just as the London government has done on the issue of Northern Ireland and in other conflict zones in the world?
