Students, end ‘illegal’ sit-in so review can proceed: Ma

Staff writer, with agencies

The president said the KMT’s caucus supports the opposition’s proposal on reviewing the pact and “they should work together in this way to solve the matter.”

Asked if he will talk to the student protesters face-to-face as they are asking, Ma said he was afraid it would be “meaningless,” citing Premier Jiang Yi-huah’s (江宜樺) attempt to talk to the activists on Saturday, which failed to yield any progress after Jiang refused to meet the protesters’ preconditions for dialogue.

Ma also denied that his government has been under pressure from China to push the pact through the legislature as quickly as possible.
