Taipei, Dec. 5 (CNA) The ruling Kuomintang’s presidential candidate Eric Chu (朱立倫) said Saturday if peace across the Taiwan Strait cannot be maintained, no country would be willing to cooperate with Taiwan and it would become isolated like North Korea.
Chu, the KMT chairman, made the remarks during a ceremony to mark the launch of the campaign headquarters of KMT legislative candidate Chen Ming-yi (陳明義) in New Taipei’s Luzhou District.
Chu’s own national campaign headquarters was inaugurated around noon.
He has been campaigning on the promise to maintain Taiwan’s relatively warm relations with China that have developed over the last seven years under President Ma Ying-jeou’s KMT government.
