President Tsai Ing-wen has called on Beijing to honor its promise of democracy to the people of Hong Kong. On Friday, Tsai said she believes this is the best way of dealing with the ongoing tensions in the special administrative region.

Tsai also reacted to a statement posted on Facebook by her rival in the 2020 presidential election, KMT candidate Han Kuo-yu. Han called on Beijing and the Hong Kong authorities to listen to the people. He also called for universal suffrage in Hong Kong.

Tsai said that Han had finally said what all politicians who represent Taiwan ought to say. She said that Taiwanese politicians must represent all Taiwanese people in expressing Taiwan’s resolve to do all it can to support Hong Kong’s pursuit of freedom and democracy.    [SOURCE]
