Taipei, Feb. 26 (CNA) Premier Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) reiterated Tuesday that he is ready to fight for the
sake of peace, and said that enemies who choose to use force against Taiwan will get a taste of their own medicine.
Su was responding to opposition Kuomintang (KMT) lawmaker Hsu Chih-jung (徐志榮), who asked the premier during a legislative hearing that day if signing a peace agreement with China would mean Taiwan’s “surrender.”
“I am absolutely ready to fight for peace,” he affirmed, adding that he is totally against kowtowing to Beijing.
The two major parties have been verbally sparring since KMT Chairman Wu Den-yih (吳敦義) said Feb. 14 that he will seek a peace treaty with China if the party wins next year’s presidential election. [FULL STORY]
