DPP fully committed to Taiwan’s self-defense, Su says

By William Lowther  /  Staff reporter in WASHINGTON

“Even though our policy principles are sound and in line with Taiwan’s majority, there seems to be a gap in perception,” Su said. “I know this is what we need to overcome if the DPP is to make a comeback.”

Taiwan, he said, is a sovereign country and any change must be approved by democratic means, such as a referendum.

“Taiwan should engage a rising China with self-confidence,” Su said. “We should not only pursue interaction and dialogue with the Chinese government, but also the Chinese people. More interaction means more mutual understanding and less distrust.”

There is no such thing as a “magic formula” to resolve all cross-strait differences, he said.
