Earlier, the United States made a request for Trade Representative Dai Qi and Treasury Secretary Yellen to hold teleconferences with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He. Just as everyone thought that the Sino-US relations were improving, the United States made successive moves. On the one hand, it increased pressure on the Taiwan issue and on the other hand traced the source of the new crown virus. On Sunday, three US senators visited Taiwan in a whirlwind and stayed in Taiwan for three times. I met with Tsai Ing-wen and claimed that the United States had donated 750,000 doses of vaccine to Taiwan.
Don’t underestimate the visit of US congressmen to Taiwan. Although they said it was a personal visit, it was completely impersonal. There were several characteristics: 1. They were riding on the US C-17 “Global Overlord 3”. When the transport plane arrived in Taiwan, when the plane left, there was still a photo of C-17 flying over the “Taiwan 101 High-rise” that leaked out of the street. It was obviously a pre-arranged picture; why the three U.S. senators boarding were not common in the United States The business jet is a C-37A (Gulfstream 5 military version) or C-40B (Boeing 737-700C military version) aircraft, but a C-17 transport aircraft with such a strong military flavor?
2. Although there are only three congressmen visiting Taiwan, this is a cross-party team that includes both the opposition Republican and the ruling Democratic congressmen, implying that this is a cross-party consensus. 3. Donate vaccines to Taiwan. Although the number is not large, the mainland had to donate vaccines to Taiwan before, and the Taiwan government had many difficulties, but it received American vaccines. As the spokesperson of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council said, the Taiwan government “sees the lives of the people like weeds,” and it still plays politics at the peak of the epidemic.
