Taiwan off the books for UWP

UWP leader Lennox Linton

A United Workers Pary (UWP) government will maintain diplomatic relationship with the People’s Republic of China as the idea of reverting to Taiwan is not being considered at this time, according to the party’s leader, Lennox Linton.

At the same time Linton said there will be a paradigm shift in the UWP’s foreign policy which will focus on transparency.

“The concerns that we had about some of those diplomatic engagements are that they are not based on the national interest,” he told a press conference on Tuesday. “They come out of certain personal arrangement the people have formed and they are used for the benefit of the personal arrangements.”

Dominica maintained a 21-year relationship with Taiwan until March 23, 2004 when prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, severed ties and established relations with China.

Since then China has embarked on a number of projects in Dominica including the E.O Leblanc Highway, the Windsor Park Sports Stadium, the new Dominica State College, the State House, among others.

When asked whether a UWP government would revert to Taiwan, Linton stated the idea is not under consideration at this time.

“At the moment that is not under consideration … right now I am saying to you, there is no consideration of that,” he stated.

According to Linton, the situation that exists between China and Taiwan some 10 years ago is not the same today and there is no need to reconsider the island’s foreign policy on that particular matter.

“The dollar diplomacy that took place back maybe ten years ago no longer exist,” he noted. “There is no pressing need for the reconsideration of the foreign policy of Dominica in so far as it concerns relationship with mainland China. When we take the government we will have a diplomatic relationship with China.”

He however pointed out the success and longevity of a diplomatic relations will depend on mutual interest. “How well it is serving us, how well it is serving China,” Linton pointed out. “So couple years down the road China may decide ‘we don’t want to have diplomatic relationship with you for this or that reason..”

The UWP leader also expressed concerns that there is no resident Dominican ambassador in Beijing. “Ask Mr. Skerrit, of all the importance of China to Dominica, why is it we do not have an ambassador in Beijing?” he asked.

He noted that there was an ambassador in the Chinese capital “in controversial circumstances four years ago.” “Is that gentleman still operating? Is he still controlling the diplomatic affairs of Dominica in Beijing undercover? What is going on? We don’t know,” he said.

Linton pointed out that it is for reasons like this, the UWP’s foreign policy will focus on transparency.

    I do not see anything wrong with maintaining diplomatic ties.
    the issue seems to be the hypocrisy behind those words.

    Prior to today – China was the most communist state and we seemed to have been heading towards a communist state because of our actions which seems embedded in being friends with China.

    Now all of a sudden, we will sell our souls and work with the communist countries which we detest.

    that makes no sense. It was better that they said nothing at all and did not blame the relationship with China/ venezuela or Cuba.

    now it looks liek they are eating their own shit.

    Dominica has always been DEMOCRATIC. Dominicans enjoy democracy to its fullest extent – so all the talk about communism was just bullwash.

    Anyways ….. flip flopping says a whole lot about one’s personality

      Given the indebtedness of Dominica to the countries you mentioned, how is it possible for any government after this administration to severe ties with China – whether they approve of the countries management style? ITS IMPOSSIBLE!

    Lennox knows very well that foreign relationship is based on personality and personal relationship and personal friendship.

    Lennox knows that personal relationships/friendships cannot be duplicated hence the relationships that PM has with China cannot be duplicated so he is at the losing end of the baton even before he open his mouth.

    So Lennox you will fail…China is Taiwan’s life line and you will fail because China will not treat you amicably based on your past outburst on China and Taiwan has nothing to offer you.

    So the Weather Forecast on Lennox so far is Cloudy, dreary and dark with a few thunderstorm in the model.

    The UWP Team is a breath of fresh air and we Dominicans should be happy that those men and women have answered the call to put Dominica back into the competitive bussiness world.
    On the other hand, DLp is a One Man party who takes no advise form his Pal Reps and treat them with public disrespect.I know some of them and it is out of shame that they are still pretending to be on the DLP ticket.
    Soon UWP will be the Gov’t in charge.

    I am clear on the fact that Medard went the wrong way. A product of the 70’s is no substitute for DA’s problems.A kid who was in diapers during the nd of the Black power era can never be equipped to rule unless the population is so dumb.
    No uneducated youth can understand politics.Enough on this character. Now we have this crusader LL who threw stones at all who was opposed to ConEdiso in the 90’s turn politician or was he all along? He wants to keep the Chinese economic dominance of DA alive. He was once accused and accepted on air he almost became a passport agent.If am nuts I do not want to be sane.DA is screwed and Skerrit asking us to come serve ! Give me /us a break.Skerrit or LL or Astaphan we will remain in the diaspora.No thanks.

    Linton made a good point, I’m not a UWP supporter, if he had said something negative on China you guys would have wrote same negative comments, I haven’t decide whom am gonna vote for next general election, Mr.Linlon made a good point, not only criticise you as I said before Mr. Linton do not only criticise we need to know your agenda for Dominica, and you start doing what I thought before great.

    So,
    Would a Linton Led Government be Blasted by Alleyne and the Regular callers on Q95 for dealing with “the vile, Dictatorial, Communist China”
    Would PM Linton have to apologise to the Chinese Government for the nasty things which he has said over the years about them?
    . . . But then again what option would Linton have but to maintain the relationship with China? . . . Taiwan?
    It’s likely, that the Taiwanese, like other nations worldwide, wish they can get on Mainland China’s good side.

    Roosevelt Skerrit had the foresight to establish diplomatic relations with china when everyone else were bashing the Chinese, including our own UWP opposition. As a result, Dominica has benefited more from our relations with China than our neighbouring islands who decided then to stick with the taiwanese and only recently saw the folly of their ways. The Chinese people already know that they already have a true friend in Roosevelt Skerrit and would be more inclined to continue investing in our economy under a Skerrit led Labour government than a Lennox Linton UWP Government. I don’t think the Chinese would trust Lennox as far as they can throw him. UWP’s critism of the Chinese is very well documented so i don’t think the Chinese would fall for the pally pally verbals spewing out of the mouth of lennox and his gang. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    why are dominicans so daft and foolish? SKERRIT has PUT dominica into the concrete and hard place where it is… even if he would like to move out of it… we are in soo much debt as it is… and over the years the point of the opposition to china is how SkERRT is using the relationship to benefit him.. and not our people. i know you all are stupid, so i shall use an analogy.. dominica is Tom, and Tom owes money from a ruthless thugster loan shark.. when he pulls out from the loan shark.. lets see what will happen to Tom if he dont pay off his debts.. foolish dominicans.. thumbs up to you mr linton.. very good answer on the matter, only wicked dominicans would try to spin it..

To all of those who think its not about linton and its for country and china not interested in our politics I can agree to that, but these were the same set criticizing everything we got from china, does it really make sense you want to eat from the same pot of broth talking about transparency, my foot my brother in this day and age all man looking for themselves. Times have changed, our forefathers mentality is no longer traditional. And if we are biblical people we going to read it from the book of the master controller who is God almighty. One thing I have realised is that Politics will not change the way we live, our heart towards each other must be changed. When Linton and dem go n sit in the white house you think they will know us I glad, govt. come they go is d same thing. We must go back to love your neighbour as yourself and community spirit, that will make us a better people. Because in truth and in fact we are the govt. not skerrit n PM to be Linton.

    Every Dominican is convinced in his heart, even the laborites, that under our present government, Dominicans have benefitted very little economically from our diplomatic relations with China, and for sure there is economic benefit available for us. China is focused on establishing its international relationships around the world, and this present government is fortunate to be in power at this time, when not only China but also Venezuela has had an open pocket policy with Caribbean countries. The Chinese have done important structural work in Dominica, but because of poor leadership and negotiations, no sustainable investment has been established here. A stadium, good, state college, good, road rehab, good, state house, not a priority but its there so lets say good. But these structures have to be maintained. Our people did not work on these projects, they were just installed by Chinese workers, while we stand aside and look.
    Venezuela money, where did it go? how many jobs created, where are the sustainable investments that we now need to repay Venezuela all these millions of dollars form an unemployed economy.
    In my opinion, any past government of Dominica would have done better than this, and I look forward to Mister Linton getting his turn at the wheels, and I frankly expect better since I cannot imagine a worse display of progressive governance than what this government has shown us in the past 13 years.

    the issue is, whether the current regime i.e D.L.P is working in the interest of the people… the answer is no… no jobs for locals on projects, no security for our small business ppl… no payment of vat and other taxes by chinese businesses, hence giving them a clear and unfair advantage with the locals….

    Linton has the ball and the bat, he’s bowling and batting at the same time, ya’ll laybarrats simply have to watch him and respect him

    Lennox Linton, the visionary Dominican will be our next Prime Minister… So sit quietly while you at Red Clinic and keep calm…

    That is a good move actually. China is a fast rising superpower and anyone will be a fool not to deal with China.

    Additionally IF the UWP wins the elections, the amount of money in loans Dominica owing China, their hands will be tied. Remember some of projects in Dominica are financed by low interest loans from China (although some are said to be free). So the UWP is basically stuck with China, whether they like it or not.

      I think as a good gesture to a new government the Chinese will actually forgive some of the debt – that will be good for Dominica don’t you think?

    Folks y’all must understand its not a war, its what is best for Dominica. Its not about individuals wining or losing its making our nature isle the best it can be. The important thing is that there should be transparency and accountability.

    So far all the right moves , I like a thinking man; You’ll be hard to beat

    In fact in Dominica’s history of “Party Leaders” you’re the first one who is being treated like a Prime Minister from DAY-ONE.

    And the respect man its unbelievable – everybody wants to know Linton’s perspective on everything – WOW

    foolish labourites who don’t know anything about diplomacy… who said china was skerrit’s bohpeh… China isn’t interested in our little political nonsense, whoever in power China will work with them… what u need to understand is that, unlike skerrit, Linton won’t rush to judgement and remove china (as skerrit did taiwan)…. Linton will assess the benefits that we’re getting and ensure its in the interest of Dominica, and not personal pockets…

    I want to voice similar opini vomiton to that of “Is that vomit?” I personally believe in my humble opinion that Linton is some way some how some what Jealous of the Prime Minister and whats to be in power to take revenge of what he believes that skerrit has that he doesn’t. Come on Dominicans and people alike who goes into anything without there being some personal gains whether directly or indirectly i want somebody to answer me on that. OH now he wants to go with china, give me a break!!!! One thing i want from Linton administration is free education because UWI not cheap and in the world of economics my brother nothing is free. My head of UWI can expound on that. Is do the UWP did not do something that is why they are in the yard all now you know,but for the time Skerrit is doing when he stop do linton will come on baord. I cannot understand how man like Prevost and Ron green allow Linton to come and take leadership over them you know. So fellas edo play a dictatorship on all you man, is who he want not who the UWP party wants. I so glad for linton.

    Lennox now I prove you jealous of Skerritt. lennox allyu forget man UWP make about China… it cannot be the same set of cabals.Impossible.
    What transparency? Like the one of Henley and Co ? You are yet to answer the claims being made by Tony, when you do then you can talk about transperency. Until such time you are in the yard brother. Badminded Dominican.

      Is this country a moron haven? Have to be, must be. Lennox took a sensible and responsible position on an issue and Dominicas saying he is Jealous of Skerrit? If lennox was to be jealous of somebody, would it be Roosevelt? Are you all kidding me?
      Sad nation, sad people, you all will always remain de karkar-rat of the Caribbean.

    • October 30, 2013

      A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE… I thought the English language was easy to uinderstand but I was wrong.
      Why would Lennox adopt the same attitude towards CHINA that Skerrit had for TAIWAN,and that’s the difference between both men one is for Country and people the other is for Riches and poverty. And do you know what is in the MEMORANDUM of understand that Skerrit signed between DOMINICA and CHINA do you know if we can get out of it?
      I would suggest that you think before you post where is you common sense try to understand what Lennox is saying.
