Analysts: Common interest, shared values cement EU-Taiwan ties


EU countries have turned their eyes to Taiwan for cooperation on public health, economic cooperation and the promotion of human rights.

An analyst of the European Union Centre in Taiwan said the reason for the stronger ties is not contributed to an “anti-China” policy; nevertheless, it stems from shared values and common interest. He explained that the COVID-19 pandemic has encouraged many European countries to close ranks with Taiwan.

European parliaments have been passing resolutions to spur their countries to adopt stronger relations with Taiwan, not the least of which is the Irish parliament’s “Taiwan-friendly” resolutions, a spokesperson for the Taiwan government said.
