TAIPEI, Taiwan — Kuomintang (KMT) Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu called on the Tsai
administration to “wake up” to the threat of continuing diplomatic isolation after Sao Tome and Principe cut diplomatic ties.
“We hope the government can be more clear headed, wake up to these events and exercise more wisdom in order to ensure the safety of its citizens and the country’s future,” Hung said during an impromptu media call before the party’s weekly central standing committee meeting.
KMT legislators expressed concern that Wednesday’s incident could trigger a domino effect of countries switching recognition to Beijing, urging the government to reevaluate its current position on cross-strait relations. [FULL STORY]
