Ever since Tsai Ing-wen was elected leader of China’s Taiwan region, she has made 25 arms deals with the two successive U.S. administrations, spending nearly $20 billion on buying U.S. weapons. While she pours money into the United States, many in Taiwan are struggling to make ends meet. In an interview with Wang Guan, Teng Jianqun, researcher at the China Institute of International Studies, pointed out that Tsai and DPP “will continue the many manipulations of the situation,” but only for their own benefits, “not for the sake of the public in Taiwan.”

Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. Neighbouring countries include the People’s Republic of China to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south.

The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
