Chinese embassy ‘strongly objects’ to speech in US

COMPLAINT:The Beijing embassy said giving King Pu-tsung a university platform to speak from ‘made Taiwan appear to be a separate country and not part of China’

“My country greatly values the historical relationship with the US. We have stood together in good times and bad. We continue to be grateful for US support on diplomatic, economic, political and military fronts,” he said, adding: “Today, there is no daylight between Washington and Taipei. Our relationship is as strong as ever.”

King said that Taiwan stood as a “beacon of liberty” whose light was “shining across the Strait to the people in China who do not have the right to freely choose their political leaders.”
