ADIZ stance undermines nation: Lee

By Lee Hsin-fang and Stacy Hsu  /  Staff reporter, with staff writer

Fourth, the government’s over-dependence on imported energy and food has jeopardized the nation’s economic security, which requires it to build a sustainable economy and put more effort into developing agriculture and renewable energy sources.

Lastly, as the relationship between the nation’s financial sector and the real economy has developed abnormally, the government needs to redefine it immediately.

Separately yesterday, former representative to Japan Koh Se-kai (許世楷) said Ma had turned from someone who said he was willing to go to war with Japan over the Diaoyutai dispute to a person who blatantly denied the apparent link between China’s ADIZ announcement and the issue of territorial sovereignty.

“The difference in Ma’s handling of the two incidents underscores his pro-China stance… He has given up expanding the nation’s military capacity and improving its public diplomacy because of China, while willingly turned himself into the leader of a ‘client state,’” Koh said.
