A copy of the letter was also sent to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

Meanwhile, in Taipei, the Taiwan Solidarity Union (TSU) yesterday submitted a letter to the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) to appeal for Bush's support for Chen's proposals to abolish the NUC. The TSU urged the US to abide by its founding principles in supporting Taiwanese people's freedom to decide their own future.

The letter was accepted by an AIT security official yesterday, but the institute made no comment on the letter.
