New Power Party (NPP) Legislator Freddy Lim (林昶佐) said he and former US deputy national
security adviser Stephen Yates discussed Taiwan-US ties and the emergence of the so-called “naturally independence-leaning” young people in Taiwan during dinner on Saturday night.
The dinner at a hot pot restaurant in Taipei was arranged after Lim on Thursday extended a Facebook invitation to Yates, who served as deputy security adviser to former US vice president Dick Cheney.
“I did not expect that Yates followed my Facebook page. Then I assume he will see this message: ‘Hi. How are you? Do you want to grab mutton hot pot with me?” Lim wrote on Facebook.
The singer-turned-politician on Saturday evening posted a photograph on Facebook showing him, Yates and a friend of Yates eating mutton hot pot and drinking beer. [FULL STORY]
