Ma’s office says Taiwan not a country

Ma’s office says Taiwan not a country

2024-03-28

Former President Ma Ying-jeou is set to visit China in four days. On Thursday, Premier Chen Chien-jen said that if Ma meets with Chinese leader Xi Jinping, he should underscore Taiwan’s sovereignty and independence. The remarks met a sharp rebuttal from Ma’s office, which asserted that Taiwan independence violates the R.O.C. Constitution.

Would you want to see a second meeting between Ma and Xi?

Chen Chien-jen
Premier
If the occasion presents itself, I hope Ma can underscore that Taiwan is a sovereign independent nation in front of Mr. Xi.

At the Legislative Yuan, Premier Chen Chien-jen said former President Ma Ying-jeou should champion Taiwan’s sovereignty and independence, if he meets with Chinese leader Xi Jinping. The appeal was met with sharp criticism from Ma’s office, which released a statement accusing Taiwan independence supporters of violating the R.O.C. Constitution. The statement asserted that Taiwan is not a country but a part of China, defined as the R.O.C. It said the Constitution recognized just one China, and that the preamble to the Constitution’s Additional Articles mentions unification.

All President-elect Lai has to do is look at the R.O.C. Constitution and the Act Governing Relations between the People of the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area, which state that the relationship between the two sides of the strait is not that of two countries.

They are taking a submissive stance in hopes of gaining favor from Xi Jinping. We have been spending tens of millions every year on Ma Ying-jeou’s benefits as a retired head of state. That money isn’t provided by the 1.4 billion people across the strait. You shouldn’t become weak-kneed for the sake of trying to make history.

The convener of the Economic Democracy Union think tank, lawyer Lai Chung-chiang 賴中強, weighed in. He said that if, during the meeting with Xi, Ma declares that the two sides of the strait are one China, and agrees that China has sovereignty over Taiwan, it could be considered an act of treason and warrant prosecution.

Huang Jie
DPP lawmaker
From their point of view, when they talk about China they are referring to the “1992 Consensus.” But you have to look at the current state of things. Even China doesn’t find the “1992 Consensus” viable. If Ma Ying-jeou doesn’t think that the R.O.C. is a country, he should seek out his ancestors and go back to where he’s from.

Critics are slamming Ma for his visit to China, his potential meet with Xi, and his denial of Taiwan’s sovereignty.

陳揆呼籲"主張台灣主權獨立" 馬辦:台灣不是國家

2024-03-28

再過四天,前總統馬英九將再次訪中,外界聚焦4月8號"馬習二會"!日前行政院長陳建仁喊話,希望能主張台灣是主權獨立國家,馬辦竟然反嗆台灣不是國家,是中國一部分,還括號強調是中華民國。律師賴中強痛批,若宣稱同屬一中,就是叛國可以法辦,綠營立委林俊憲也說,別再領卸任元首禮遇了。

[[立委(國) 賴士葆]]
“二次馬習會你樂見嗎?”

[[行政院長 陳建仁]]
“萬一有這樣的一個機會,他能夠在習先生的面前,來主張台灣是一個主權獨立的國家”

行政院長陳建仁才喊話,要前總統馬英九,如果二會習近平,請記得宣揚台灣是"主權獨立"國家!馬辦竟發新聞稿反嗆"台獨",違反中華民國憲法,指稱台灣不是國家,是屬於中國的一部分,還特別括號強調這個中國是中華民國,一中憲法也有"統一"前言。馬辦執行長也極力鋪陳這樣的論點.

[[馬英九基金會執行長 蕭旭岑(3/26)]]
“賴總統只要回到中華民國憲法跟兩岸人民關係條例,公開的宣示說,我們兩岸不是兩個國家的關係”

[[立委(民) 林俊憲]]
“無限的放低姿態,期望能獲得習近平關愛的眼神。我們一年花了幾千萬,用卸任元首的待遇供養馬英九,出錢的不是對面的14億人,不要為了追求自己所謂的歷史定位,就連膝蓋都無限放軟”

經濟民主連合智庫召集人、律師賴中強認為,若"馬習會"宣稱兩岸同屬一中,馬英九附和中國對台擁有主權,本質上就是叛國,就可以法辦。

[[立委(民) 黃捷]]
“在他們前提之下都是以九二共識,在說這個中國,但是現狀很明顯,就是中國已經沒有辦法使用九二共識,中華民國不是一個國家的話,馬英九你要認祖歸宗,你自己滾回去”

馬英九堅持二訪中國、見習近平,無視台灣主權的言論,國內罵聲連連。
