As tension escalates in the Taiwan Strait, former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott arrived in Taipei on October 5 for visiting. During his stay, he will meet with senior Taiwanese officials such as Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, Foreign Minister Wu Zhaoxie, and Secretary-General Gu Lixong of the National Security Council. This clearly indicates that Abbott is carrying out missions on this trip.
The governments of Australia and the US held 2 + 2 talks between foreign ministers and national defense ministers in Washington last month. They both praised Taiwan’s second to none democratic polity and a vital partner of the two countries. The two countries are committed to supporting Taiwan’s active participation in international affairs. Abbott strongly supports Taiwan’s accession to the CPTPP, criticizing that the CCP is actually starting a new Cold War, and Australia should be vigilant about the dictatorship of Xi Jinping.
Abbott’s visit to Taiwan, once again, demonstrates the Australian government attaches great importance to its relationship with Taiwan and the situation at the Taiwan Strait, which is closely related to the national security of Australia. Maintaining stability at the Taiwan Strait is a vital part of Australia’s Indo-Pacific policy.
