authority must be dealt with by the government.

Huang’s comments on Monday came on the heels of news that the chairman of the opposition Kuomintang (KMT), Wu Den-yih, is considering leading a delegation to China next month. The purpose of that trip would be to attend a joint-forum between his party and the Communist Party of China (CPC).

As a former vice president, in order to visit China, Wu is required by law to send an application to the Presidential Office. But Huang said the Presidential Office has yet to receive an application.

Huang explained the government’s stance on exchanges between the KMT and the CPC.
