Mainland Affairs Council Deputy Minister Chiu Chui-cheng
Taiwan’s top China policy maker — the Mainland Affairs Council — says that China is unilaterally escalating tension in the Taiwan Strait. The comment comes in response to remarks by the head of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, Wang Yang, at the Straits Forum in Xiamen over the weekend.
Wang said that Taiwan’s current political course of action sacrifices the well-being of people on both sides of the strait in favor of economic gains. He said the Taiwanese independence movement sows discord and invites intervention from Western powers. [FULL STORY]
