The European Union imposed the arms embargo against China that was originated in June 4 1989 when PRC used forces to suppress the Tiananmen Square in Beijing for the pro-democracy movement of the masses, known as the "Tiananmen Square protests of 1989". Based on the value of the human rights, the United States of America and the European Union suspended mutual trades and adopted the arms embargo against China. They hoped, through the norms of international institutions, to promote human rights in China on the value of efforts to achieve universal standards.
While the international strategic environment has changed after the end of the Cold War, some of EU members such as France and Germany, and the others based on each national political and economic interests, proposed the lifting of the arms embargo against China that the European Union has implemented for 14 years. However, the opponents argued that the conditions of human rights in China have not yet been in accordance with the standards of universal value. Moreover, during the period of EU’s arms embargo, China can not only directly acquire non-lethal weapons from some EU members; meanwhile, but also import advanced weapons equipments and technology of weapons system from Russia. Once the arms embargo against China is lifted, EU will export weapons to China, which means not only sending the wrong message to China regarding its conditions of human rights, but also accelerating the pace of China''s military modernization. That will impact the balance of Asia-Pacific regional military power balance and the security of the Taiwan Strait.
With the study approaches of neo-realism, such as national interests, the balance of power, the distribution of power in the international system and states for external relations, this article is a to study whether or not EU lifts arms embargo and its possible impact on Taiwan’s Military Security. Examining the variable of lifting the arms embargo against China, EU members are more profitable through the cooperation of decision mechanism, or affect the posture of international multilateral cooperation, which may result in the dependent variable that China would build up military power or become a regional hegemony. Its impact could bring about the destabilization of the world and the region. Hence, our country should take protective measures based on the building of national interests, and then cooperate with international institutions in order to achieve the balance of power in the Asia-Pacific region that is conducive to reach the goal of architecture of our national security.
