Q3: The Chinese Communists boycotts Taiwan’s participation in the international organizations (for example, disallowing Taiwan from joining the World Health Organization, the United Nations, and etc.), and lower Taiwan’s position in the international organizations (for example, pressing the OIE to pass a resolution to admit “Taiwan is a part of China’s territory”).

33.5% (3) Agree
26.5% (4) Strongly agree

37.4% (2) Unacceptable

Who did the poll? When? Via what method? How many people were asked the questions? Can readers of this blog see the questions as worded in the original language? If so, where?

The answers to these questions would be quite helpful.

Dear Mr. Maddog,
The version in its original language is as follows:
1)近日中共以金錢外交挖走我們的邦交國-哥斯大黎加,請問,您對中共刻意打壓台灣國際生存空間的行為氣不氣憤?
2)中共在國際上搶奪我邦交國,請問您認為中共應不應該承擔兩岸關係惡化的責任?
3)中共阻撓台灣參與國際組織(例如:不讓台灣加入世界衛生組織WHO、聯合國等),矮化台灣在國際組織的地位(例如:壓迫世界動物衛生組織通過「台灣為中國領土的一部分」決議案)請問您認為這樣做,對兩岸關係的影響是好還是不好?
4)中共在軍事上威脅台灣、外交上打壓台灣,另一方面卻又說「凡是對台灣人民有利的事,都要努力去做」,請問,您認為中共是不是言行不一、欺騙台灣的人民?
5)有人說中共對台政策的主要目的是消滅中華民國、併吞台灣,北京不可能對台灣主權議題做出讓步,所以不應再對中共心存任何幻想,請問您同不同意這樣的說法?
6)中共主張台灣先接受「一個中國原則」,否定中華民國的主權國家地位後,兩岸可以針對中共允許台灣參加的一些民間性質的文化、經濟國際活動進行協商。對於中共這種主張,有人認為可以接受,有人認為不能接受,請問您可不可以接受?
Hope you will find the info useful. Thank you!
