TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – President-elect Tsai Ing-wen and Vice President-elect Chen Chien-jen visited the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Friday to hear a secret report.
Foreign Minister David Lin and his deputies Bruce Linghu and Javier Hou welcomed the delegation in what is a normal feature of the transition period up to the May 20 inauguration. Tsai and Chen earlier also visited the Ministry of National Defense for a similar briefing.
Tsai was accompanied at MOFA Friday by several key members of her new foreign policy team, including the next secretary-general of the National Security Council, Joseph Wu, Foreign Minister-designate David Lee, his deputy Wu Chih-chung and the next presidential secretary-general, Lin Pi-chao.
It was not immediately clear which topics the ministry briefing for Tsai would concentrate on, but reporters waiting at the entrance of the MOFA building shouted questions at her about the crisis in the relationship with Japan. [FULL STORY]
