Republicans have plan to counter Chinese influence in Central America. The Washington Examiner reports:
Countries that cut diplomatic ties with Taiwan could lose the friendship of the United States under a newly-released bill from a bipartisan group of senators.
“This important legislation reaffirms our commitment to the U.S.-Taiwan relationship and allows for the State Department to take diplomatic action against governments that alter diplomatic relations with Taiwan in favor of China,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., one of the architects of the bill, said late Wednesday. “China’s insidious agenda to isolate Taiwan cannot go unanswered, and I call on my colleagues to quickly pass this bill.”
China, which has claimed sovereignty over Taiwan ever since the Communist Revolution that overthrew the previous Chinese government, has won a series of diplomatic victories by inducing other countries to stop recognizing the island as an independent government. Chinese President Xi Jinping’s most recent success on that front — outreach to El Salvador — had the double significance of undercutting Taiwan and laying the groundwork for a Chinese naval port in Latin America.
“Beijing is promising paydays to governments to entice them to cut diplomatic relations with Taiwan,” Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., said alongside Rubio. “Without a coherent U.S. strategy to push back, Taiwan’s official partners might drop from 17 to zero. We must stand up for our friends in Taiwan.”
This is a necessary step to stop growing Communist subversion in the Western Hemisphere.
