Washington, Oct. 9 (CNA) Mike Green, a former official of the United States National
Security Council (NSC), on Tuesday hailed President Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) cross-Taiwan strait policy, saying it was steady-handed.
“Her decision on defense strategy and cross-strait relations are going to be very important and valuable to how Washington views its own commitment to Taiwan,” Green said. “Washington and Tokyo are pretty good, confident about Tsai’s government.”
“That’s really a lot of assets for Taiwan,” said Green, who served as director for Asian affairs at the U.S. NSC (2004-2005) in the administration of former U.S. President George Bush, told CNA after a seminar hosted by the National Committee on United States-China Relations.
He said, however, that Tsai has to be careful not to surprise Washington or Tokyo.
