Taipei, June 2 (CNA) Opposition Democratic Progressive Party Chairwoman Tsai Ing-wen failed to address how she will bolster ties with China in an article that appeared in the June 1 edition of Wall Street Journal, a Presidential Office official said Tuesday.

Cross-strait ties are important part of Taiwan’s relations with the U.S., and by failing to specify how to strengthen ties with China, Tsai missed out on the most crucial issue, the official said. [FULL STORY]
