What’s behind Tsai’s facade of Taiwan democracy?

CGTN published this video item, entitled “What’s behind Tsai’s facade of Taiwan democracy?” – below is their description.

The West may consider Taiwan the watchdog of democracy in China, but to the people from the region, it is a facade. It hides the clampdown on the opposition and media by the island’s authoritarian leader Tsai Ing-wen. Joanna Lei, a former legislator based in Taipei, and Teng Jianqun, researcher at the China Institute of International Studies, talk about Nancy Pelosi’s controversial visit. The conclusion: Pelosi is an old China baiter who was taken in by Taiwan’s democratic facade. In reality, the U.S. has turned “a blind eye” to people’s oppression and suffering 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 The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971.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.
