Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China announces next annual conference to be in Taiwan

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said May 14 that it sincerely welcomes the announcement that the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China will hold its next annual conference in Taipei and will fully assist in the event.

At the Copenhagen Democracy Summit on May 14, the IPAC broadcast an updated version of the video "Diagnosing the Fog of Conflict in the Taiwan Strait, Operation MIST" together with a pre-recorded clip by Foreign Minister Jaushieh Joseph Wu, announcing that IPAC will hold its annual meeting in Taiwan in July this year. 

The MOFA also confirmed that IPAC and the Alliance of Democracies Foundation, the organizer of the Copenhagen Democracy Summit, jointly issued a statement calling on the free world to commit to defending democratic Taiwan. 

The document called on the governments of all nations to consider the potential impact a blockade of the country would have on the world economy. It also asked like-minded governments to jointly deter China, and deepen economic, political and cultural relations with Taiwan.

This year's Copenhagen Democracy Summit invited both President Tsai and President-elect Lai to deliver speeches as pre-recorded videos. Since the event coincides with the inauguration of the new president and vice president, the MOFA believes that this is a profoundly significant recognition of Taiwan's achievements in safeguarding democracy and its democratic inheritance.
