Taïwan - Elections (14th January 2024)


The free elections in Taiwan once again showed how firmly democracy is rooted in Taiwan, and how much Taiwanese citizens aspire to democratic values, the rule of law, and human rights. We congratulate all voters and candidates who participated in this democratic exercise as well as those elected.

Taiwan is a close partner for Europe and France and we hope that following these elections, ties with Taiwan, notably in the economic, cultural, scientific, and technological fields, can be further developed within the framework of our One China Policy.

We reaffirm the utmost importance of peace and stability in the region, as well as the respect by all parties of the status quo, and hope for the resumption of dialogue and cooperation between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait.
