under the Foreign Ministry had withheld a story featuring an interview with a transportation minister from the Ma Ying-jeou administration.

Yeh Kuang-shih (葉匡時), chief of the transportation ministry in the Ma administration, took to social media on Tuesday to complain that the Foreign Ministry’s Taiwan Review decided not to print a story in which he gave his views on the Taiwan High Speed Rail.

In a Facebook post, Yeh said he was interviewed by a reporter for an article to be published in an upcoming issue of Taiwan Review.

Yeh said he later received a call from the reporter, who said his superior told him the article would not be published.

In the post, Yeh suggested the decision may have been politically motivated.
