Washington, Feb. 7 (CNA) U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration should welcome Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) commitment to maintaining the status quo across the Taiwan Strait, according to a report released Tuesday in Washington, D.C.
The report, titled “U.S. Policy Toward China: Recommendations for a New Administration,” was authored by a bipartisan task force comprising prominent China specialists and jointly issued by the Asia Society’s Center on U.S.-China Relations and the School of Global Policy and Strategy at the University of California, San Diego.
The report said Taiwan has a long history as a “central, volatile, and potentially dangerous element” in U.S.-China relations and urged the Trump administration to make significant changes in policy only after a careful analysis of the potential consequences. [FULL STORY]
