像川普,拜登拒絕再把台灣當成刺激中国的工具,台灣自我評估,台美關係尚未惡化;  不像昔日美國率領國際聯盟逼退宣布併吞科威特的伊拉克,不像冷戰時美國率領的北約,為保護西柏林不惜與蘇聯一戰,今天美國穿梭的國際聯盟難有共識 它們不願意為了台灣而得罪最大的貿易夥伴中国...

美國 外交/國際關係

香港 South China Morning Post, 2021-4-18:  拜登政府可能想加深與台北的關係,但沒有跡象顯示在出兵保衛台灣這一敏感問題上,戰略模糊有根本的轉變,美台交往新準則不允許任何台灣“正式”關係的形式或符號不包括正副總統和高級政府官員的往來,川普視台灣為抗中先鋒,拜登可能視台灣為捍衛美國利益的'盾牌'  scmp.com/news/china/diplomacy/article/3129980/joe-biden-set-end-guessing-game-about-what-us-will-do-if

Seattle Times, 2021-4-9: 美國發布美台互動新準則,表示拜登有意"放寬"規則以深化雙方之非正式關係,然而看來並未包括所有川普放寬的接觸限制,比方與美國官員會晤時允許台灣軍官穿著制服並展示台灣國旗 (The department announced the changed policy in a statement that said the Biden administration intends to “liberalize” the rules to reflect the “deepening unofficial relationship” between the U.S. and Taiwan. However, the revised guidelines don’t include all the changes put in place by former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in the waning days of the Trump administration.  Pompeo had lifted virtually all restrictions on contacts with Taiwan, including allowing Taiwanese military officers to wear uniforms and display the Taiwanese flag at meetings with U.S. officials. seattletimes.com/nation-world/nation-politics/us-unveils-new-rules-for-government-contacts-with-taiwan/ ) Guardian, 2021-4-11: 新指南是在國會授權審查之後進行的,將為有效實施“一個中國”政策提供清晰性……,華盛頓正式承認北京,而不是台北。(A state department spokesman, Ned Price, said the new guidelines followed a congressionally mandated review and would “provide clarity … on effective implementation of our ‘one China’ policy” – a reference to the longstanding US policy under which Washington officially recognizes Beijing rather than Taipei. ) Global Times, 2021-4-10: 美台互動新準則已經從川普準則退了一步英國Financial Times報導美不准官員於台灣重要節日進入雙橡園; 新準則目的是測試中國大陸,美台關係存在明顯的“天花板” ,並不會因此發生質的變化 globaltimes.cn/page/202104/1220693.shtml  ◆ Hill (國會山莊), 2021-4-9: 美國發布美台互動新準則,鼓勵雙方接觸...但並未明確說明其中的內容 蕭美琴表示歡迎這種鼓勵,期待利用新的機會共同合作...  thehill.com/policy/international/asia-pacific/547464-state-department-announces-new-guidance-on-talks-with

Nikkei Asia (Japan), 2-6-2021: 目前跡象顯示,拜登團隊計畫加倍加碼川普的台灣政策,其負面後果是,中国幾乎確定會加劇對台美國的外交,經濟和軍事威脅, 美台關係的 加強也可能為民進黨壯膽,在2024年總統大選前大力推展主權 , 只有時間才能證明拜登採行的是可持續的抑或明智的政策   Biden doubles-down on Trump's Taiwan policy, but will it last?   the negative consequences of bolstering U.S.-Taiwan ties are that China would almost certainly intensify its diplomatic, economic and military threats against Taiwan and the United States.    Strengthened U.S.-Taiwan relations might also embolden Tsai's Democratic Progressive Party to push the envelope on sovereignty (Taiwan independence issue) in the run-up to Taiwan's 2024 presidential election.   Despite these concerns, the Biden team, for the time being at least, appears poised to opt for a stronger relationship with Taiwan as set forth under the Trump administration. Only time will tell whether it is sustainable or wise policy.   asia.nikkei.com/Opinion/Biden-doubles-down-on-Trump-s-Taiwan-policy-but-will-it-last  

Foreign Policy, 1-22-2021 : 美台外交關係將轉趨低調;  台灣正在尋求拜登的保證,但是拜登很可能拒絕川普利用台灣刺激中国的方式;  Taiwan seeks assurances from Biden admin., but Biden and his team are likely to resist using Taiwan as a cudgel against China the way Trump did.  Many experts expect Biden to hold off on the public saber-rattling and use of US policy toward Taiwan as a war to push back at China that typified the Trump approach.   Biden's objectives are likely to include "viewing Taiwan as a card to be valued, not a card to be played in competition with China". The relationship is likely to remain more low-key.

Washington Examiner, 1-24-2021 : The United States does not recognize Taiwan as an sovereign country, but U.S. strategists regard the island as a crucial link in a chain of islands that restrains the Chinese Communist military’s ability to operate away from the Chinese coast and threaten U.S. forces and other allies.
美國不承認台灣為主權國家,但戰略上視台灣為島鏈之重要樞紐

Bloomberg, 1-24-2021: The State Department statement indicated a desire by the Biden administration to preserve the longstanding ambiguity about Taiwan’s status.

國務院取消美台官員互動指導方針與限制  可能激怒中國  State Dept. lifts US-Taiwan restrictions in move likely to anger China

 

美國New York Times,
1-9-2021

美國務卿解除與台灣官員會晤互動的限制 ,傳遞與台北關係正在升溫,以及對北京更加嚴厲的訊號,但是拜登政府很容易就能扭轉這一舉動 State Dept. Moves to Ease Restrictions on Meeting With Taiwan Officials is meant to signal a warming of relations with Taipei and a tougher line with Beijing, but the Biden administration could easily reverse the move.

“此舉沒有什麼實際效果  看起來像是一個宣傳特效把戲"  the move was likely to have little practical effect. “It looks like a publicity stunt”

■  這樣一個相對重要之舉意在為拜登設下陷阱,迫使他要麼付出國內政治代價,要麼攪糟北京的關係 The moves, some outside experts said, are meant to lay a trap for Mr. Biden, forcing him either to pay a domestic political cost if he unwinds them or to sour relations with Beijing if he does not.

 拜登先生可能仍舊不鼓勵與台灣官員的高層接觸 Mr. Biden could discourage high-level contact with Taiwan officials.

■ 川普政府將取消所有幾十年來為安撫北京的共產黨政權美國政府單方面“複雜的內部限制” ,日本也視這個島國為抗衡日益強大中國軍力的堡壘Trump admin is lifting all of complex internal self-imposed restrictions which was in an attempt to appease the Communist regime in Beijing... 50 years of engagement with Beijing has not worked and that a different and tougher approach is needed...  Japan, too, views the island nation as a bulwark against growing Chinese military assertiveness.

■ 共和黨政府試圖在離任前撒下混亂的嘗試 這樣的籠統聲明,廢除了多年來所有指南,卻沒有明確取代的框架,只會加劇華府混亂  This could be seen as an attempt by the Republican administration to sow chaos before it’s departure.  “A blanket statement such as this, abrogating all of the guidance in place for years, without articulating what framework will replace it simply amplifies perceived chaos in DC”

Chinese state media (CGTN, CCTV) blast Trump admin. for " cowardly act of sabotage" a "cowardly act of sabotage" that "crossed a dangerous red line." “越過危險的紅線”的“膽怯的破壞行為”

The move may not be universally applauded stateside, either, per Reuters. Bonnie Glaser, an Asia expert at Washington's Center for Strategic and InternationalStudies, predicts the Biden administration will "rightly be unhappy that a policy decision like this was made in the final days of the Trump administration." 根據路透社,這一舉動可能不會在美國得到普遍讚揚。華盛頓戰略與國際研究專家Bonnie Glaser預測,拜登政府“對在Trump政府最後幾天做出這樣的政策決定感到非常不滿

Diplomat,  2021-4-21: 中國大陸的外交強制未能取得令人滿意的結果,台灣應對似乎越來越有彈性。北京缺乏台灣內部的盟友,以充當平衡民進黨“挑釁性”政策的反擊力量。 “親大陸”的國民黨和郭文哲的台灣民眾黨不僅對當時的執政黨不構成任何可信的反對勢力,他們還積極尋求與美國建立更好關係。 Beijing is also devoid of allies within Taiwan to act as countervailing forces to balance the Democratic Progressive Party’s “provocative” policies. Not only do the “pro-mainland” Kuomintang and Ko Wen-je’s Taiwan People’s Party pose no credible opposition against the prevailing ruling party, but these parties also actively seek better ties with the United States.

◆  Foreign PolicyNewsweek, 2021-4-5 : 為了減少對大陸的依賴,台灣總統'16年上任後宣布了新的南向政策(NSP)。NSP旨在促進與東南亞南亞及 紐西蘭澳洲的經貿聯繫。表面上像是一個不錯的主意,但實際上,NSP近年來步履蹣跚,到2020年台灣與這些國家的貿易實際下降了3%,至2019年下降超過4%。 On paper, it sounds like a decent idea, but in practice the NSP has faltered in recent years to the point where Taiwan’s trade with those countries actually decreased by 3 percent year-on-year in 2020, which followed a year-on-year fall in 2019 by more than 4 percent.   foreignpolicy.com/2021/04/05/taiwan-covid-19-success-china-military-threat/

◆  Newsweek, 3-2-2021: 蔡上任以來的指導性經濟計劃一直是“新南向政策”,其目標是消除對中國大陸市場的依賴,取而代之的是與南亞東南亞的合作夥伴建立貿易和安全關係,遠至澳洲和紐西蘭。
據台灣財政部統計,去年台灣對大陸和香港的出口額佔台灣出口總額的40%以上,即出口總額3,452億美元中的1,514億美元
Tsai's guiding economic plan since her first year in office has been her government's "New Southbound Policy," whose goal is to remove reliance on the Chinese market and instead build trading—and security—relationships with partners in South Asia, Southeast Asia and extending as far as Australia and New Zealand.  According to Taiwan's Ministry of Finance, more than 40 percent of the island's exports went to China and Hong Kong last year, accounting for $151.4 billion of its $345.2 billion  newsweek.com/taiwan-allies-rally-defy-chinas-economic-coercion-pineapples-1573124   (China Times, 3-3-2021: 大陸對台的讓利政策。多年來大陸每年通過貿易逆差給台灣送去800至1000億美元的紅利。以經濟部1月8日公布,2020年台灣對大陸(含香港)出口額達1514.52億美元,創歷年新高,同比增長14.6%,占台灣總出口額的43.9%。大陸(含香港)穩居台灣地區最大出口市場和最大順差來源地。2020年台灣總出口額為3452.76億美元,同比增加4.9%;進口額2864.86億美元,同比增長0.3%,貿易順差587.9億美元。若扣除對大陸(含香港)的貿易順差866.73億美元,台灣2020年進出口貿易則出現逆差   陳思奕 )

 

The Diplomat, 2-5-2021:  台灣總統蔡英文強調了新南向政策的重要性,東南亞和印度是該政策的重點。但有一些阻礙進度的問題。幾十年來,台灣外交政策議程的大部分重點一直以美國為中心,而亞洲的重要性仍然不如美國和歐洲。此外,台灣與新南向國家間沒有外交關係,缺乏互惠性可能是阻礙製訂針對性政策的因素。最後,台灣缺乏對那些國家的專業知識是一個主要障礙。《新南向政策》具有極大的潛力,可以對那些傳統上不是台灣戰略思考對象的國家大幅提高台灣的區域影響力,並且很可能可以為中國試圖打壓台灣國際空間提供答案 Taiwan highlighted the significance of the New Southbound Policy and pointed to Southeast Asia and India as particular focus points for the policy.  For decades, much of the focus of Taiwan’s foreign policy agenda has been America-centric and Asia still does not figure as much as the United States and Europe do. In addition, the absence of diplomatic ties between Taiwan and the countries under the New Southbound Policy and lack of reciprocity might be dissuading factors for Taiwan to devise a consistent policy toward the countries of the region. Finally, a lack of expertise on the South Asian countries in Taiwan is a major hindrance.  The New Southbound Policy has immense potential to significantly increase Taiwan’s regional outreach in the countries that were not traditionally part of Taiwan’s strategic thinking, and may very well serve as an answer to China’s attempts to shrink Taiwan’s international space  (brief)

Pro-independence media called this a ‘diplomatic breakthrough’. It is unfortunate for Taiwan that diplomacy has become a tool of domestic politics.
