Taiwan wants to enter into a major trade agreement with China first1

Taiwan considers itself an independent nation, but China considers it a separate province.
Taiwan has filed an application to join a major Asia-Pacific trade agreement, just days after China submitted an application.

But it warns that its bid to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) could be jeopardized if China joins first.

The two places have a complex relationship.

Taiwan considers itself an independent nation, but China considers it a separate province.

On Thursday, Taiwan’s chief trade negotiator, John Deng, told reporters that if China first joined the CPTPP, “Taiwan’s membership would be in jeopardy, it is very clear.”

The new countries require the unanimous approval of all 11 members to join the agreement.

On Thursday, Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motigi told reporters that he welcomed Taiwan’s request to join the agreement, Kyodo News reported.

The CPTPP was initially created by the United States to counter China’s influence, but was later withdrawn by the United States under then-President Donald Trump.

It is the largest of its kind, connecting the vast countries of the region.

China has not yet commented on Taiwan’s request – although it has repeatedly insisted in the past that Taiwan be excluded from many international organizations or declared part of China.

As a result, Taiwan sometimes came up with different names. For example, his team competes in the Olympics under the name of Chinese Taipei.

Taiwan has also applied to join the CPTPP under the name used in the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Both China and Taiwan’s requests come in the wake of the recent announcement of a controversial security agreement by the United States, Britain and Australia, which seeks to counter Chinese influence in the Asia-Pacific.

The Axis Agreement will allow Australia to build nuclear-powered submarines for the first time using technology provided by the United States and the United Kingdom.

China has criticized Akos, with Foreign Ministry spokesman Xiao Lijian saying the alliance “threatens to seriously undermine regional peace and escalate the arms race.”

Australia’s ‘dangerous bet’ with US over China
The original Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was promoted by then-President Barack Obama as an economic bloc to challenge China’s increasingly powerful position in the Asia-Pacific.

After Mr. Trump pulled the United States out of the deal, Japan led the talks to become the CPTPP.

The CPTPP was signed in 2018 by 11 countries, including Australia, Canada, Chile, Japan and New Zealand.

Pakistan’s prime minister says banning Afghan girls’ schools would be un-Islamic

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that barring women from access to education in neighboring Afghanistan would be un-Islamic.

The Prime Minister of Pakistan advised that women can claim their rights in Afghanistan.

In an interview with the BBC, Mr Khan outlined the conditions that would be necessary for Pakistan to formally recognize the new Taliban government.

He called for leadership and respect for human rights.

Mr Khan also said that Afghanistan should not be used for terrorists who could pose a threat to Pakistan’s security.

Last week, the Taliban left girls in secondary schools with only male and male teachers. But the Pakistani leader said he was confident the girls would be able to attend soon.

“The statements he has made since coming to power are very encouraging,” he told the BBC’s John Simpson.

“I think they will allow women to go to school,” he said. “The idea that women should not be educated is not just Islamic. It has nothing to do with religion.”

Since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan in August, fears of a return to government in the 1990s have been heightened when hardline Islamists severely restricted women’s rights.

Its leadership argues that women’s rights will be respected “within the realm of Islamic law.”

The decision to exclude the girls from returning to school last week caused an international outcry, with a Taliban spokesman later saying she would return to class “as soon as possible.”

But it is not yet clear when the girls will be able to return or what kind of education will be provided if they do.

When pressured into whether the Taliban would meet the formal recognition criteria, Mr Khan repeatedly called on the international community to give the group more time.

She said it was too early to say anything, adding that she expected Afghan women to finally claim their rights.


Not everyone sees Pakistan as a strong ally in the fight against jihadi terrorism. He has long been accused of providing support to the Taliban in the United States and elsewhere, which he denies.

Following the 9/11 attacks in Afghanistan, Pakistan declared itself an ally of the United States in the so-called “war on terror.” But at the same time, parts of the country’s military and intelligence establishment have maintained links with Islamist groups such as the Taliban.

Mr Khan said Pakistan, along with other neighboring states, would decide to formally recognize the Taliban government.

“All the neighbors will come together and see how they develop,” he said. “Whether or not to recognize them will be a collective decision.”

Worries over civil war

Mr Khan called on the hardliners to form a comprehensive government, warning that failure to do so could lead the country to civil war.

“If they do not include all factions, sooner or later there will be a civil war between them,” he said. “It means an unstable, chaotic Afghanistan and an ideal place for terrorists. It’s a problem.”

On Tuesday, a Taliban spokesman announced the remaining members of all male Afghan governments.

The additions included a doctor as health minister, but analysts say the government is primarily made up of loyalists with little minority representation.
