Taiwan Civil Government (TCG) appeals to the United States, ROC Authorities to sign a "War-Ending Agreement" and "Peace Treaty" with TCG


TAIPEI, Taiwan, Jan. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire=KYODO JBN/ --

The Taiwan Civil Government (TCG), an educational and advocacy organization

based in Taiwan, held a press conference to call upon the United States and the

Republic of China (ROC) authorities to sign a new treaty resolving outstanding

issues from World War II and addressing the international recognition of Taiwan.

The Secretariat Cabinet Minister Shangfong Lin released a written statement

outlining the TCG's position that the US-led coalition defeated the Japanese

Empire (including Taiwan and Penghu) during World War II, and therefore

continues to be the sole and best solution towards Taiwan's sovereignty.  

The TCG points out that on September 2, 1945, Allied Commander General

MacArthur appointed Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek to represent the Allied

forces in accepting the surrender of the Japanese military. On October 25,

1945, ROC occupied Taiwan and Penghu, which it has done ever since.

The TCG further explained that on September 8, 1951, 48 countries signed the

San Francisco Peace Treaty (SFPT) with Japan, which included several provisions

on Taiwan, including the following Article:

Article 23: The United States of America is the principal occupying Power of

Japan (including Taiwan, Penghu).

Notably, the ROC did not sign the SFPT, and therefore Taiwan was in anarchy,

the TCG explained. According to the laws of war, a Taiwanese government must be

established by the people of the occupied territories. The ROC, as an agent of

the United States, did not help the Taiwanese people establish a Taiwanese

government; therefore violating the laws of war by establishing the Taiwan

Chief Executive Office.

A recent diplomatic conversation illustrates the TCG's argument. In a November

14, 2018 meeting, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Russian President

Vladimir Putin, expressed that Japan and Russia will elevate their mutual trust

and resolve the territorial disputes stemming from a post WWII "joint

declaration" in 1956. In dispute are four islands referred to as the Northern

Territories by Japan and the Southern Kuriles by Russia. One key issue in

Russia returning the islands to Japan is that no U.S. military bases will be

built on the islands. Abe and Putin stressed that while World War ll ended more

than 70 years ago, they recognize the outstanding territorial issues, and, they

should be resolved and not left for future generations to address.

Similarly, Formosa (Taiwan) and the ROC were both participants in World War ll.

It has been 73 years since the end of that war, but no Peace Treaty has been

signed between the US, ROC and TCG, regarding Taiwan's sovereignty. The TCG

argued it must be resolved now to avoid leaving this problem to future


At the press conference, the TCG appealed to the United States, the principal

occupying Power, that TCG should sign a war-ending agreement and peace treaty

with Kinmen and Matsu's ROC to conclude World War II, bringing peace to Taiwan

and the world.
