Taiwan's representative office for the European Union and Belgium is thanking the European Parliament for passing two annual foreign policy and defence implementation reports with language supportive of Taiwan.


The reports asserted that "neither Taiwan nor China is subordinate to the other". It also stated that the European Parliament "strongly condemns" China's military provocations against Taiwan and rejects any unilateral changes to the cross-strait status quo."

The defence report said that to deter such "Chinese aggression," EU member states should conduct more "freedom of navigation operations" in the Taiwan Strait and to deepen security dialogues with Taiwan while the security policy report urged the EU to back Taiwan's meaningful participation in international organizations and called on the European Commission to begin preparations to negotiate with Taiwan on a bilateral investment agreement.
