The USA invites you to the “Summit for Democracy”. There is Taiwan, there is no Hungary and Turkey

Inviting Taiwan to the summit with the participation of world countries will certainly provoke a strong protest from China, which considers Taiwan a rebellious province and an integral part of the Middle Kingdom, which cannot maintain international relations. The US does not formally maintain diplomatic relations with Taiwan, but is the main supplier of modern weapons to the island’s army.

At the summit, the Middle East is represented by only two countries – Israel and Iraq

The list of participants of the “Summit for Democracy” prepared by the Department of State includes 110 countries (including Poland), the summit will be held on 9 and 10 December in a virtual form. The aim of the summit is to halt the transition from democracy in the world.

There are no undemocratic regimes, such as those of China or Russia, on the list of invited countries. Hungary, for example, was also not invited to the summit.

Taiwan’s invitation to the summit alongside sovereign states comes at a time when China is putting increasing pressure on the countries of the world to limit contacts with Taiwan.

The issue of Taiwan emerged during the recent virtual meeting between Chinese presidents Xi Jinping and US presidents Joe Biden. Biden was said to express “firm opposition to unilateral attempts to change the status quo in the Taiwan Strait.” In turn, Xi assessed that Taiwan is moving towards formal independence, and that its supporters and the US are “playing with fire.” China has long stressed that Taiwan’s formal declaration of independence is the red line for it.

Writing about the Summit for Democracy, Reuters points out that it has invited both “mature democracies such as France and Sweden, but also countries such as the Philippines, India and Poland,” where there are concerns about the state of democracy.

Egypt and Turkey, the US ally in NATO, were also not invited to the summit. At the summit, the Middle East is represented by only two countries – Israel and Iraq.
