Want China Times
Vice economics minister Cho Shih-chao said Thursday a Taiwanese newspaper report suggesting that he will discuss with the mainland Taiwan’s bid to join the proposed China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) during his ongoing visit there, was false.
Cho, who is on a visit to China as a member of the Taiwan-based Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) delegation, said he had not and will not discuss issues related to Taiwan’s AIIB bid with China.
A Liberty Times’ report said Cho first visited the United States to talk about the issue, including what name Taiwan might use to join the AIIB, during the four-day Tomb Sweeping Festival weekend from April 3-6 and he subsequently converged in Taipei with the SEF delegation before leaving for the mainland on April 7.
