Saying her administration has sidestepped the issue, pro-independence groups
yesterday urged President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) to proclaim the nation’s independence and sovereignty.
Tsai should use the first anniversary of her inauguration to announce that Taiwan is an independent country to express the nation’s sovereignty, former representative to Japan Lo Fu-chen (羅福全) said.
“Tsai’s refusal to accept the ‘1992 consensus’ last year has solidified the fact that Taiwan is not part of China, but a formal affirmation of Taiwan’s independence in Tsai’s capacity as president is needed,” Lo said.
The government should also enact an “anti-annexation” act to counter Beijing’s increasingly aggressive infiltration of Taiwan, he added. [FULL STORY]
