Part II: Understanding the UN General Assembly Resolution 2758 and its background, the issue of Taiwan’s sovereignty, international law and the nature of the UN.
In its arguments on Taiwan, the CCP often emphasizes that the People’s Republic of China is the sole legal government representing the whole of China. Emphasizing that Resolution 2758 embodies the UN Charter and purposes, Communist China wants to resolve the issue of China’s representation in the United Nations politically, legally, and procedurally, clearly, fairly, and thoroughly, which marking that the one-China principle is the most important and universal for not only in UN and recognized by international organizations. Highlighting 180 countries in the world have established diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China, all of these counties respect the “One China Policy”.
United Nations Resolution 2578 recognizes the only legal representative of the government for China is the People’s Republic of China. And the People’s Republic of China is one of the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council; it restores all rights of the People’s Republic of China, recognizing its government representatives as the only legal representatives of China in the United Nations, following the decision, it removes Chiang Kai-shek’s representatives from the United Nations and deports Chiang Kai-Shek rep from the occupied seats in all the institutions. The Chiang Kai-shek government called the resolution is “Exclusion of Bandits and Gangsters” and announced its withdrawal from the United Nations before the resolution.
Given the background fact of the withdrawal of the Republic of China from the United Nations, the main reason why the Republic of China was deprived of its representation in the United Nations was due to the diplomatic reset of the US Nixon administration, which is to further deter the Soviet Union’s strategic needs. Taiwan was regarded as the abandoned son as the US government was seeking strategic interest. Taiwan is the victim of the game under the “political and logical consciousness of international power”. This is the inevitable outcome of weak country diplomacy after the Republic of China retreats to Taiwan. It is also due to the Chiang Kai-shek government’s arbitrariness and failure to conduct full democratic self-determination on this matter.
Since Taiwan entered the era of imperialism in the 17th century, it has become a strategic hub for each country own interest. As the frontier of the American Empire, the Chinese Communist Empire, the Japanese Empire, and the Russian Empire, since World War II, the fate of Taiwan has been dominated by the United States. The political power giant in the United States has always speculated on Taiwan’s value and formulated policy’s view on Taiwan based on their own needs of different historical periods. At the end of World War II, the issue of Taiwan’s sovereignty was not defined and resolved. This was a historical landmine deliberately left by the United States and Western power entities based on the situation in East Asia at that time to maintain the balance of power in East Asia (checks and balances). As the necessary needs, to intervene at any time in this strategic fulcrum that can maintain the influence of the empire.
The CCP has been clamoring that it has sovereignty over Taiwan, but what about the facts? First, the CCP has not completely overthrown the government of the Republic of China throughout the territory. The government of the Republic of China has always exercised jurisdiction over Taiwan, Penghu, Jinma in the name of the central government. The CCP government only invaded and occupied the territory of the Republic of China government in the mainland area, but did not occupy the Taiwan, Penghu, Jinma area, so it could not form an effective succession of government and sovereignty. Therefore, the United Nations General Assembly Resolution 2758 deprived the Republic of China of its power as a representative of Chinese sovereignty and expelled it from the United Nations should be illegal.
According to International law, the beginning and end of a war is counting as from the declaration of war to the entry into force of a peace treaty, which all rights and obligations after the agreement can only have legal relations after the peace treaty takes effect. Japan signed the San Francisco Peace Treaty with the Allied Powers in 1951 and signed the Sino-Japanese Peace Treaty with the government of the Republic of China in 1952. However, in these peace treaties, Japan only expressed its “abandonment” of all rights and rights to Taiwan, Penghu and other islands. And the requirements do not indicate where Taiwan’s sovereignty belongs. When the “San Francisco Peace Treaty” was signed, the consensus of the representatives of the overwhelming majority of the signatory countries was that Taiwan’s status was temporarily undecided. The US government stated in the “Communiqué on the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between China and the United States” and “August 17th Communiqué” that the United States recognizes China’s position, that is, “There is only one China, and Taiwan is a part of China.” Acceptance does not mean anything other than “cognition”. Based on this, it can be understood that the United States has not made it clear that the Chinese Communist regime is the only legal regime representing China (sovereign status), nor has it recognized the Chinese Communist regime’s claims on Taiwan. In particular, the UN Resolution 2758, which is regarded as the standard by the CCP, does not mention the CCP government’s claim of sovereignty over Taiwan. Including the “92 Consensus” that the CCP refer to. The Taiwan side only recognizes the historical facts of the 1992 Hong Kong talks, but does not recognize the existence of the “92 Consensus” because in fact there is no real consensus. The CCP has merged The “respective statements” in the talks were not respected. Including in 2007, former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon claimed that Taiwan was part of the Chinese Communist regime when citing Resolution 2758 and was protested by the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan and other countries. Ban Ki-moon finally apologized and promised not to use this to judge Taiwan’s sovereignty.
The Republic of China, as the founding country of the United Nations, was actually expelled. The truth of the fact is that the national government lost its actual ruling power on the mainland and its size became smaller. Compared with the Chinese Communist regime, which controlled a vast area, its substantial influence became weaker. This is the key reason why Western countries have switched to the Chinese Communist regime. More importantly, the global dark camp at that time carried out extensive diplomatic connections in order to support the Chinese Communist regime, so as to force the political power of the United States to have no choice but to take control of the CCP and its connected international forces. The power of influence and the consequences of its potential confrontation can make interest balances and trade-offs. All political actions based on pragmatism have nothing to do with justice, fairness and morality, but only need to be subordinated to the pathological selfishness of political personality.
International law and the United Nations are freaks under power politics. It does not have any political beliefs and execution capabilities that can maintain and enhance the well-being of mankind. Because of the lack of effective punishment mechanisms and enforcement entities, their essence is only a buffering consultation mechanism between absolute powers, but their actual effectiveness is very limited. In international political activities which dominated by “pragmatism”, alliances between any countries will be extremely fragile. Many “power political entities” advertised that the spirit of limited contract and the morality of limited fairness that exist between countries with international law and the United Nations as the international order are only temporary interests.
Under such a subjective consciousness that takes the corrupt order as the legitimacy and justice, emphasizing any concept will not have any positive effect on the improvement of human well-being. Mankind does not need to be trapped in the vain concept of “sovereign state” and “national interest.” The current world order is a product of the logical ideology of new imperialism and power politics. After the Second World War, it used the positive face of the new order as a disguise to reset the channels for capturing global interests and resetting the order of sharing. The essence is to redistribute, enslave, and maintain the solidification of the human world. There is no legitimacy or justice at all. In fact, the root cause of the current virus and vaccine disaster is that the human world is attached to an order that has existed for too long, and that order is becoming more rigid and worse. There is no order that can be done once and for all. The human world has always replaced the old order with a new order. As long as it violates its original intention and begins to counteract the human world, then it should accept the fate of being reprimanded and ruthlessly subverted.
The Republic of China (Taiwan region) is a regional society that essentially has all the elements owned by a sovereign state. It is a regime that effectively occupies the region, not a regime of the Chinese Communist Party. However, its definition, power, and rights should not be defined and represented by any concept or political force based on subjective cognition. Based on the common belief that people in the same region have developed, the only right to give meaning and future to Taiwan is for the people of Taiwan to vote for self-determination.
