None of the active party officials of Taiwan’s ruling Kuomintang (KMT), including members of
the Central Standing Committee, will attend the World War II commemorative activities in Beijing whether they are invited or not, according to Lin Yi-hua, chair of the KMT’s Culture and Communications Committee.

Former premier and chief of the General Staff of Taiwan’s military Hau Pei-tsun said Thursday that he has not been invited to the parade on Sept. 3 and that he would not attend even if he had been invited. [FULL STORY]
