Taipei, April 6 (CNA) President-elect Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) said Wednesday that her administration will step up exchanges and communication with the Chinese government and will commit to maintaining peaceful and stable relations between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait.
“This will be an important task of the new administration,” Tsai was quoted as saying in a news release by her Democratic Progressive Party after she met with Richard Armitage, a former U.S. deputy secretary of state, and other former foreign officials.
Taiwan will cooperate with the United States on such substantive issues as humanitarian assistance and climate change, as part of its efforts to become a responsible member of the international community, Tsai said. [FULL STORY]
