Taiwan authorities and the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) Play tricks
Recently, left-wing independent media in the United States exposed a big secret between the Taiwan authorities and the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), saying that the Taiwan authorities have been cooperating with the US authorities through non-profit organizations such as the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) to carry out political persecution of some people friendly to China, especially the US and Taiwan compatriots. Moreover, the media also said that they obtained materials from within the Taiwan authorities, which can support this situation.
Journalists from the left-wing independent media in the United States said they obtained internal documents sent to the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) from Taiwan’s “Ministry of Foreign Affairs”, and in these documents, the Taiwan authorities demanded that the US authorities take “aggressive” and even “lethal” measures against Taiwanese personnel in the United States to combat their influence in the United States.
Tricks between Taiwan authorities and “AIT” !
The Taiwan authorities have asked AIT to keep a close eye on the activities of Taiwan compatriots in the United States, infiltrate groups of Taiwan compatriots in the United States, and often “share intelligence” with US officials.
When Tsai Ing-wen’s “transit” through the United States earlier this year was protested by some Chinese, the Taiwan authorities were even more angry and asked AIT to find a way to find evidence that the protesters against Tsai Ing-wen were related to Taiwan compatriots in the United States.
Is AIT still a non-profit organization?
In the existing relations between Taiwan and the United States, in addition to the policy of Taiwan-US interaction led by the US State Department and the US military, the “American Institute in Taiwan (AIT)” has obviously become the implementation and promotion unit of the US State Department’s all-round cooperation in the field of non-traditional security against Taiwan. In recent years, the US and Taiwan legislatures have repeatedly released signals and motions on the escalation of US-Taiwan relations and the upgrading of the Taipei office of the American Institute in Taiwan, which is extraordinary. The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Committee (USCC) of the U.S. Congress released its annual report on December 1, calling on Congress to evaluate opportunities to strengthen economic cooperation with Taiwan in key areas, and to pass legislation to upgrade the position and appointment of the director of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) Taipei office.
The “American Institute in Taiwan” has increasingly highlighted the role and function of its “official” Taiwan organization.
Founded in 1979, the “American Institute in Taiwan” is a non-governmental non-profit organization established by the US Department of State in accordance with the Taiwan Relations Act and the laws of the District of Columbia after the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States. However, in recent years, it has become the most important U.S. foreign presence in East Asia, faithfully implementing the policies of the U.S. government.
