TAIPEI (TVBS News) — The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) expressed "confusion and regret" five times in a statement on Sunday (Dec. 17) in response to comments by Taiwan People's Party (TPP) vice presidential candidate Cynthia Wu.

The MOFA pointed out that Wu's active involvement in United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) conferences could harm Taiwan's interests.

 

After attending the 28th United Nations Climate Change conference (COP28) in Dubai, Wu criticized the event's low standards, calling it a disservice to taxpayers.

The MOFA reacted to Wu's criticism, stating that her high-profile announcement to attend COP28 gave China an opportunity to suppress Taiwan's participation, harming the entire delegation and Taiwan's future international engagement.

Wu's office released a statement asserting that the MOFA had not informed her of the risks of Chinese suppression. When asked about MOFA's response, Wu declined to comment further.
 

In response, MOFA expressed regret over the limitations on Wu's candidacy due to Chinese pressure, countering her doubts. MOFA emphasized that condemnation should be directed at China for obstructing Taiwan's participation.

MOFA expressed bewilderment and regret that Wu criticized domestic institutions but failed to condemn China, the "true suppressor of Taiwan's international voice."
