said Wednesday that Kaohsiung Mayor Han Kuo-yu’s (韓國瑜) recent visits to Beijing’s liaison offices in Hong Kong and Macau were “politically sensitive” and a first for a Taiwan politician.

“It was an extremely politically sensitive act,” Chen said prior to a legislative hearing.

“Neither former Kaohsiung Mayor Chen Chu (陳菊), who is now secretary-general at the Presidential Office, nor former Taipei Mayor and former President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) took such a step when they visited Hong Kong or Macau in their capacity as local government heads,” he said.
