U.S. seeks deeper Taiwan-Philippines relations as fisheries agreement signed

Amid agreements Taiwan has signed with Japan and the Philippines, with which it has no diplomatic ties, Mazza said that the U.S. seeks deeper relation...

Michael Mazza, an American scholar on foreign and defense policy, said Tuesday that Taiwan has shown its contribution to regional peace as it has signed fisheries agreements with both Japan and the Philippines.

He pointed out that it is a positive development in terms of promoting regional peace, as Taiwan has shown its ability to carry out pragmatic diplomacy under such difficult circumstances.

Taiwan had signed the fisheries agreement with Japan in 2013, and with the Philippines in November, in dealing with the dispute over the overlapping maritime borders between Taiwan and the Philippines in 2013.

Amid agreements Taiwan has signed with Japan and the Philippines, with which it has no diplomatic ties, Mazza said that the U.S. seeks deeper ties between Taiwan and the two nations, as well as Taiwan’s bilateral ties with other countries.
