Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Secretary-General Joseph Wu (吳釗燮) arrived in Washington on Tuesday to reassure the US government there would be “no surprises” from president-elect Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文).
“Going forward, we will do our utmost to find a mutually acceptable mode of interaction between Taiwan and the mainland,” Wu told a briefing session at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a Washington think tank.
He is expected to hold talks this week with US Department of State Assistant Secretary for East Asia Danny Russel, National Security Council Asia Director Daniel Kritenbrink and US Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for East Asia Abraham Denmark.
Wu is also scheduled to hold talks with members of the US Congress and think tank staffers. [FULL STORY]
