US supports CBMs, but not promoting them

By William Lowther  /  Staff reporter in Washington

Even though Taiwan remained a potential cause of friction between Washington and Beijing, Romberg said, the situation had evolved to the point where all three parties were being careful not to create turmoil or crisis.

“In this situation, over time, certain kinds of CBMs might be considered,” he said.

However, Li Da-jung (李大中), an associate professor in the Graduate Institute of International Affairs and Strategic Studies at Tamkang University, said that cross-strait negotiations were moving into a new phase, with Taipei trying to set the pace.

He said Taiwan was carefully choosing the issues on the negotiating table, but that there was a lack of domestic consensus in support of CBMs.
