The United States has reiterated that its long-term position and policy toward Taiwan
remain unchanged, spokesperson for Taiwan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Eleanor Wang said Tuesday.
Commenting on the upcoming meeting between President Barack Obama and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping slated for Sept. 25 in Washington DC, Wang said that based on the experiences in the past years when US presidents met with Chinese leaders, the “Taiwan issue” had always been mentioned.
However, National Security Advisor Susan Rice reiterated recently that the US policy and the position it has persistently held toward Taiwan remain unchanged.
Wang said the development of relations between Washington and Beijing should not affect either the interests of Taiwan or the six-point guarantee made by the US based on the Taiwan Relations Act, nor should it affect US-Taiwan exchanges and cooperation in any aspect. [FULL STORY]
