Taiwan’s New President Urges China to Halt Military Intimidation in Inauguration Speech

In his inauguration speech, Taiwan’s new President Lai Ching-te called on China to cease its military intimidation against the island, which Beijing claims as its own territory. Lai emphasized that despite Taiwan’s pursuit of peace, it cannot overlook China’s continued threat of force. He succeeded Tsai Ing-wen, who navigated Taiwan through economic and social development during her eight-year tenure, amid challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic and increasing military pressure from China. The inauguration ceremony in Taipei drew thousands of attendees, who witnessed military displays and colorful performances, while Lai received congratulations from politicians from various countries, including those with official diplomatic relations with Taiwan, as well as representatives from the U.S., Japan, and Europe.
