Premier Su Tseng-chang (蘇貞昌) yesterday said he felt that there was "no sincerity" behind a proposed meeting with Chinese Nationalist Party Chairman Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) because so far the latter has refused to withdraw his party's proposal aimed at recalling the president. "You cannot hold a gun to someone's head while saying that you want to talk to them," Su said. The premier said that during the pre-meeting between his aides and Ma's staff members on Sept. 27, both sides agreed that "harmony" between Su and Ma must exist before talks could take place. "You should show sincerity if you want to talk. But I did not feel it from him at all," Su said, adding that he is still waiting for Ma to "do something" to ameliorate the "atmosphere."
