President Tsai Ing-wen Wednesday as a “pragmatic and reasonable leader” and said Beijing should take more responsibility for the stalemate in cross-Taiwan Strait relations.

“I have found President Tsai to be a very pragmatic and reasonable leader. I think she has tried to reach out to the Mainland, I don’t think people in Washington are blaming the lack of dialogue on President Tsai,” he added.    [FULL  STORY]
