Taipei, Nov. 2 (CNA) Copies of the personal diaries of former Republic of China President Chiang Ching-kuo (蔣經國) will be made public in February 2020 at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, after a long-running dispute prevented them from public viewing.

The joint announcement was made Friday by the institution, Academia Historica in Taiwan, Chiang Ching-kuo's granddaughter Chiang Yo-mei (蔣友梅) and the family of Chiang Hsiao-yen (蔣孝嚴), the former president's third son.

They will be made available in the Hoover Archives Reading Room, which is currently under construction and is set to reopen early next year, the institution said.

Some of the diaries, however, will be made public on Dec. 17, when a conference celebrating the opening of the diaries to the public will be held, according to Lin Hsiao-ting (林孝庭), curator of the institution's Modern China Collection.    [FULL  STORY]
