蔡英文勝選 美國務卿蓬佩奧發文祝賀

1月11日台灣總統選舉,蔡英文勝選,AIT晚間在臉書揭露美國國務卿蓬佩奥就台灣選舉發表聲明:

美國祝賀蔡英文總統連任成功,我們也恭賀台灣再次展現其堅實民主制度的活力;台灣健全的民主制度、自由的市場經濟和朝氣蓬勃的公民社會,使台灣成為區域的楷模以及世界上一股良善的力量。

美國人民和台灣人民不僅是合作夥伴,也是同一個民主社群的一份子,並由相同的政治、經濟和國際價值觀緊密聯繫著。我們都珍視由憲法保障的權利和自由、培育由私部門帶領的成長和創業精神,並積極成為國際社群的正向力量。

美國感謝蔡總統帶領台灣與美國建立緊密穩固的夥伴關係,並肯定蔡總統在面對持續不斷的壓力下,仍致力於維持兩岸的穩定。在蔡總統的領導之下,我們希望台灣持續為追求民主、繁榮並致力於提供人民一條更好的道路的國家,樹立傑出的榜樣。

原文如下:

The United States congratulates Dr. Tsai Ing-wen on her re-election in Taiwan’s presidential election. We also congratulate Taiwan for once again demonstrating the strength of its robust democratic system, which—coupled with a free market economy and a vibrant civil society—makes it a model for the Indo-Pacific region and a force for good in the world.

The American people and the people on Taiwan are not just partners—we are members of the same community of democracies, bonded by our shared political, economic, and international values. We cherish our constitutionally protected rights and freedoms, nurture private sector-led growth and entrepreneurship, and work to be positive forces in the international community.

The United States thanks President Tsai for her leadership in developing a strong partnership with the United States and applauds her commitment to maintaining cross-Strait stability in the face of unrelenting pressure. Under her leadership, we hope Taiwan will continue to serve as a shining example for countries that strive for democracy, prosperity, and a better path for their people.
