The Establishment of a Sovereign and Independent Republic of Taiwan

Territorial sovereignty and self-government are the preconditions for modern nations to establish the rule of law and to develop international relations.

The facts that Taiwan is sovereign and independent, that it does not belong to the People's Republic of China, and that the sovereignty of Taiwan does not extend to mainland China, reflect historical realities as well as the present situation, and at the same time form part of the consensus of the international community.

According to this reality of sovereignty and independence, Taiwan should draw up a constitution and establish a nation. Only then is it possible to guarantee respect and security for Taiwanese society and for individual citizens, and to offer the people the opportunity to pursue freedom, democracy, prosperity, justice and self-realization.
