Yeah, we just have the head of the Czech senate in our parliament today. He said, “I am Taiwanese.” This is, of course, an homage to the “ich bin ein Berliner” speech. In that sense, saying, “I am Taiwanese,” or, “I am also Taiwanese,” is synonym of, “I stand for liberal democracy. I stand for freedom in the face of adversity.” There is something global, something universal in this, of course.
