Treaty confirmed sovereignty: Ma

ANNIVERSARY The president said it was easy to read between the lines of the Treaty of Taipei and see that the ROC government is the legitimate ruler of Taiwan

By Ko Shu-ling  /  STAFF REPORTER

Meanwhile, former vice president Annette Lu (呂秀蓮) said Ma’s attendance at yesterday’s ceremony was tantamount to recognizing the Treaty of Taipei.

The 1952 pact superseded the 1943 Cairo Declaration, she said.

On Monday Lu had challenged Ma to declare “two Chinas” and to apologize for citing the Cairo Declaration as the KMT’s rationale that Taiwan is part of China and that the ROC is the legal government of Taiwan.

She also urged the president to modify high school history books to show that the ROC was not the legitimate government of Taiwan.

The Treaty of Taipei anniversary exhibition at the Taipei Guest House will be open to the public once a month to coincide with the weekend openings of the Presidential Office.
