Senate reminds Trump of vital Taiwan-US ties

Thirty-eight US Senators in a letter on Tuesday urged US President Donald Trump to be mindful of Washington’s vital partnership with Taipei in his upcoming trip to China and meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平).

The letter, spearheaded by Senate Taiwan Caucus chairs James Inhofe and Robert Menendez, was signed by 38 US senators across party lines, which is more than one-third of the 100 senate seats.


Beijing to increase pressure on Taiwan, MAC says

Beijing is to exert more pressure on Taiwan by stepping up its dual strategy of draining the nation of its workforce while coercing Taiwan by diplomatic means, Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) Minister Katharine Chang (張小月) said yesterday during a forum discussing cross-strait relations following the Chinese Communist Party’s 19th National Congress.


Great Father Xi and feudal thinking

The second stanza of the Chinese-language version of The Internationale, the anthem of international communism, contains the following four lines:

“There has never been any savior of the world,

Nor deities, nor emperors on which to depend.

To create humankind’s happiness,

We must entirely depend on ourselves.”


NPP wants badges to be banned from campuses

New Power Party (NPP) Legislator Hsu Yung-ming (徐永明) yesterday panned the nation’s campus military instructors for wearing badges bearing the symbol of the China Youth Corps (CYC) and the Chinese National Party (KMT).


Ruling raises questions of motive

Former president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) has been acquitted of the two charges of leaking classified information and wiretapping in the final verdict in Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) caucus whip Ker Chien-ming’s (柯建銘) lawsuit against Ma.

Although an appeal in another case filed by Ker at the Taipei District Court is still being handled by the Taiwan High Court, having encountered these judges, the future does not look too bright and the prosecutor’s efforts might also end up being in vain.


A different political era

Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) Minister Katharine Chang (張小月) on Wednesday expressed her hopes of meeting with Liu Jieyi (劉結一), who has been tapped to head China’s Taiwan Affairs Office (TAO), and resuming a disconnected hotline with her Chinese counterparts.

The MAC, established in August 1988 as the Inter-Agency Mainland Affairs Committee under former Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) premier Hau Pei-tsun (郝柏村), facilitates relations with China in the absence of official ties between the two nations.
