“This monument serves as testament to the ROC government’s commitment to safeguarding sovereignty and promoting regional stability by turning the East China Sea, South China Sea and Taiwan Strait into three seas of peace,” Ma said.
Arriving on an S-70C helicopter in the afternoon, the president was joined at the ceremony by senior government officials, academics, and members of the media from home and abroad. He also met with ROC Coast Guard Administration personnel based on the islet and inspected a weather observation station and lighthouse. This was Ma’s second visit to Pengjia Islet following his first in September 2012.
Pengjia Islet is situated around 30 nautical miles north of Keelung City in northern Taiwan and 76 nautical miles west of the Diaoyutai Islands. [FULL STORY]
