Shih Hsin University Students’ Association president Canelle Chen (陳文越) yesterday said she backed the university signing a “one China” agreement proposed by Beijing, accusing “political black hands” of manipulating the issue.

Chen commented on the letters incident by telephone while attending a news conference at the Chinese Nationalist Party’s (KMT) headquarters.

Shih Hsin was the first of at least 80 universities that have reportedly signed agreements with Chinese universities promising not to mention issues regarding “one China.”

“After four days of public discussion about Shih Hsin University’s inking of a letter of agreement, the focus has been blurred. I think that some people have stuck their political black hands into campus business, maliciously manipulating the matter and attacking the university,” Chen said.    [FULL  STORY]
