24日,布基納法索政府宣布與臺灣當局斷絕“外交關系”。臺灣民進黨當局領導人蔡英文24日晚召開記者會,聲稱面對“中國”“打壓”,“臺灣”絕不會退縮,“不會再忍讓”。


  臺灣的所謂邦交國在僵持的兩岸關系下無奈做出選擇,在馬英九執政時期兩岸關系持續升溫,社會安定和諧穩定發展?,F在的臺灣有如此局面,可以說是民進黨與蔡英文選擇臺獨的下場。另外美國的變向支持也讓民進黨有了可以獨立的錯覺。

  SEC. 2. FINDINGS. 第2條 結論


  Congress finds the following:


  國會確認如下結論:


  (1) The Taiwan Relations Act (22 U.S.C. 3301 et seq.), enacted in 1979, has continued for 37 years to be a cornerstone of relations between the United States and Taiwan and has served as an anchor for peace and security in the Western Pacific area.


  (1)1979年制定之《臺灣關系法》已持續生效37年,成為美臺關系的基石,成為西太平洋洋地區和平與安全之錨。


  (2) The Taiwan Relations Act declares that peace and stability in the Western Pacific area are in the political, security, and economic interests of the United States and are matters of international concern.


  (2)《臺灣關系法》宣稱西太平洋地區的和平與穩定事關美國的政治安全與經濟利益,也是國際關切事項。


  (3) The United States considers any effort to determine the future of Taiwan by other than peaceful means, including by boycotts or embargoes, a threat to the peace and security of the Western Pacific area and of grave concern to the United States.


  (3)美國將考慮除和平手段之外的任何措施,包括聯合抵制或貿易禁運,以應對針對西太平洋地區和平、安全及美國嚴重關切的威脅。


  (4) Taiwan has succeeded in a momentous transition to democracy beginning in the late 1980s and has been a beacon of democracy in Asia, and Taiwan’s democratic achievements inspire many countries and people in the region.


  (4)臺灣已于1980年代末期成功完成民主轉型,成為亞洲民主的燈塔(beacon),且臺灣民主成就激勵著該地區的諸多國家和人民。


  (5) Visits to a country by United States Cabinet members and other high-ranking officials are an indicator of the breadth and depth of ties between the United States and such country.


  (5)美國內閣成員及其他高級別官員對某個國家(country)的訪問是美國與該國之聯系深廣度的檢驗指標。


  (6) Since the enactment of the Taiwan Relations Act, relations between the United States and Taiwan have suffered from insufficient high-level communication due to the self-imposed restrictions that the United States maintains on high-level visits with Taiwan.


  (6)自《臺灣關系法》實施以來,美臺關系由于美國對高級別互訪的自我限制而經歷了很不充分的高層互動。
