Topic: BPF–Taiwan (ROC)-China (PRO) Stance
The Belize People’s Front (BPF) wishes to inform the public of its policy of support of the Republic of China (ROC) Taiwan, for their generosity as a global citizen that have been very consistent in helping our country Belize. Such assistance has been in areas of: infrastructure development, education, agriculture, aquaculture and other areas. We enjoy a history of good relations and we are looking forward to many more years of friendship and cooperation with ROC, Taiwan.
Recently, a member of the opposition met with People’s Republic of China (PRO) Zhi Gong Political Party in Shanghai. This led to speculation by many that the opposition may be thinking about shifting diplomatic relations if they get elected, from the current Republic of China (ROC) Taiwan. The BPF hereby publicly declare, that any potential party, vying to represent the people of Belize, should make clear their intent as it relates to Foreign Policy.
Belize People’s Front (BPF) takes the position that while we have already established a relationship with the Republic of China, Taiwan (ROC); we also acknowledge the People’s Republic of China (PRO) to be a very powerful nation with whom improved relations should be explored. Efforts to promote global peace and brotherhood is of paramount importance. The conditions of mutual respect of self-determination, would be inherent in any contact. BPF supports diplomatic efforts by both Republic of China (ROC) Taiwan and the People’s Republic of China (PRO) to continue to promote peace and cooperation between themselves and the global community.
