The European Parliament has adopted two security policies which include provisions that support Taiwan's meaningful participation in international organisations and which call for peace and stability in the Taiwan Strait.


The Common Foreign and Security Policy voiced its support for "Taiwan's meaningful participation as an observer in meetings, mechanisms and activities of international organizations and for deeper EU-Taiwan cooperation, including a bilateral investment agreement."


The Common Security and Defence Policy also called for "all parties concerned to resolve their differences through peaceful means and to de-escalate the tensions as well as to refrain from taking unilateral action to change the status quo in the Taiwan Strait."


That policy also states that "any change to cross-strait relations must not be made against the will of Taiwan's citizens."
