Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) yesterday visited Sun Yat-sen
Memorial Hall in Taipei on the 151st anniversary of Sun’s birth, where she said that the KMT is Sun’s true heir, in response to the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) celebration of Sun’s 150th birthday in Beijing on Friday.
Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) on Friday said that the best way to pay tribute to Sun Yat-sen is to continue to pursue the rejuvenated China that Sun dreamed of, Xinhua news agency reported.
Xi also said that the CCP is “the most resolute supporter, the most loyal collaborator and the truest heir of Sun’s revolutionary enterprise,” the report said.
Hung yesterday said that Sun is the KMT’s “permanent leader” and a great man who led the revolutionary founders of the Republic of China (ROC). [FULL STORY]
