TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Any interference by the United States in relations between Taiwan and China is doomed to fail, former President Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) said Wednesday.

The retired Kuomintang (KMT) leader made the remark at a seminar about the future of cross-strait relations hosted by Soochow University in Taipei.

His speech came after the independence-leaning Democratic Progressive Party suffered a major defeat in the November 24 local elections, ending up with only six positions of city mayor and county magistrate against 15 for the KMT.

Ma described how before he met Chinese leader Xi Jinping (習近平) in Singapore in 2015, the U.S. had said relations between Taipei and Washington had been at their best because of his stable handling of cross-strait relations, the United Evening News reported.    [FULL  STORY]
