Others pushing Chicom fiction that Taiwan is not a country
The German biotech company BioNTech urged Taiwan to remove the word “country” from a joint press release that would have announced a now-scrapped vaccine deal between the East Asian nation and BioNtech, Taiwan Health Minister Chen Shih-chung said on Thursday.
Taiwan’s health ministry began talks with BioNTech to secure supplies of its Chinese coronavirus vaccine — which it produces jointly with the U.S.-based pharmaceutical company Pfizer — but those negotiations ended in January over the wording of a draft press release, Chen revealed at a regular press briefing in Taipei on May 27. The Chinese company Fosun Pharmaceuticals is also a partner in the development of the vaccine.
BioNTech on December 31, 2020, “provided a final version of a vaccine contract” to Taiwan’s Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) “which the center signed and returned on January 6,” Chen said, as quoted by the Taipei Times.
“The next day, the center and the company exchanged views on what information would be disclosed about the deal, as the contract had included restrictions on what could be shared,” the health minister added.
The CECC on January 8 provided BioNTech “with a draft news release in Mandarin and English” announcing the vaccine deal “to which the company initially said it had no objection,” according to Chen. Just four hours later, however, BioNTech allegedly sent the CECC a letter center saying it “strongly recommends” the center remove the words “my country” from the statement “that had appeared in the Mandarin version of the draft.”
The Chicoms would like to subjugate Taiwan but have not done so to date. They appear to want to eliminate any free non-communist Chinese people who self-govern. It is one of the reasons why the Chicoms reneged on their deal with the British on the control of Hong Kong.
