“A historic moment is one that is witnessed by all the media, not something that meets Tsai Ing-wen’s definition. She is obviously green with envy. To think that she can set rules on what makes a historic moment is plain arrogant,” Wang said.

KMT presidential candidate Eric Chu (朱立倫) prior to the meeting said that one should not hesitate to “do the right thing.”

Chu made the remark on the sidelines of a sermon attended by Buddhist monks.

“People should look at the first meeting between the leaders of each side of the Taiwan Strait in 66 years with a broad perspective and an open mind. Any preconceived notion is bad for Taiwan,” Chu said.
