Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
What was the delegation doing in Taiwan?

Glucksmann was with six other MEPs from the Special Committee on Foreign Interference in all Democratic Processes (INGE).

They said that the aim of their trip was to learn how the Taiwanese government counters disinformation from authoritarian regimes.

While there, the lawmakers also expressed concerns over the degeneration of democratic principles in the region, citing the "very comprehensive lesson from events in Hong Kong," which has fallen increasingly under the will of Beijing in the last couple of years.

"Any silent appeasement to Beijing's policy, it's like a repetition of former mistakes the world made long ago," Lithuanian MEP Petras Austrevicius said.
