President Tsai Ing-wen has said Taiwan will not allow foreign actors to undermine the
country’s democratic freedoms. The president was speaking in her National Day address on Wednesday.
Tsai said diplomacy and defense are two key aspects of maintaining national security. But she said a third aspect is preventing infiltration from outside, whether this takes the form of cyber warfare or outside actors spreading fake news to undermine society.
Tsai said, “We are determined to defend the values of Taiwan’s diverse democracy. But if another country takes advantage of our society’s freedom to infiltrate society and create chaos, we absolutely will not sit by idly, and will take any and all preventive measures necessary.” [FULL STORY]
