TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Former Premier Yu Shyi-kun said Friday he would take stamps with him to the
presidential inauguration of Donald Trump to show the evolution of Taiwan’s struggle for sovereignty.
Yu will lead an 11-member delegation to the United States from January 16 to 23. President Tsai Ing-wen described his mission as focused on “wishes, thanks, and exchanges,” reports said.
In addition to official presents supplied by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Yu said he himself had chosen a first-day envelope with two stamps as a low-priced but nevertheless symbolic souvenir.
The envelope, published to mark the Lunar New Year of the Rooster, carried the text “Republic of China (Taiwan),” while one stamp on the envelope just said “Republic of China” and the other “Taiwan,” Yu said. [FULL STORY]
