Taiwan criticizes China for accepting global attention on earthquake, calls them ‘shameless’

Shocking the World: The Politics of Sympathy in China and Taiwan After an Earthquake

Following the devastating 7.2 earthquake that struck eastern Taiwan, killing 10 people, China’s Deputy Permanent Representative to the U.N., Geng Shuang, brought up the topic of children’s rights in a meeting. However, his mention of the quake in “China’s Taiwan” sparked anger in Taipei, as China claims Taiwan as its own territory and has no say in how Taiwan chooses its leaders.

In response, Taiwan’s foreign ministry condemned China as “shameless” for using the earthquake to conduct cognitive operations internationally. Despite this, China expressed concern for the damage in Taiwan and offered condolences and aid, thanking the international community for their sympathy. However, Taiwan’s government has already thanked governments and leaders for their messages of concern and support, including the United States, despite the lack of diplomatic ties.

The ministry stated that China’s actions show no goodwill towards Taiwan, using the earthquake as a means of psychological warfare. This behavior highlights the strained relations between the two countries, with Taiwan asserting its independence and China claiming it as a part of its territory.
