Congratulations to the United States on 247th Independence Day
The American Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776, reflects the spirit of the Enlightenment; the founding of the United States represents the universal belief in natural rights, self-determination, and also, unyielding to tyranny.
The United States leads the world with values of freedom, democracy, innovation, and inclusiveness.
In different times, this world faces different challenges. When the Cold War ended, the United States rebuilt the global order with adherence to democratic beliefs. At this time, Russia is mired in its aggressive war, and China has become the greatest threat to international security and the civilized world. Allies among democracies are needed more than ever.
It is gratifying to see that the United States has already set the stage for a joint international defense against Chinese expansion in political, economic, military, and cultural spheres.
Taiwan’s position as the staunchest ally of the United States is not just a matter of universal values. In the face of China’s expansion, Taiwan and the United States are in solidarity, and when something happens to Taiwan, something happens to the United States.
On Independence Day of the USA, Taiwan Statebuilding Party wishes that Taiwan-U.S. relations will continue to foster, that we will work together to uphold democratic values, and that we will unite for a civilized international order.
