The subhead for the page 4 article on Friday "New study predicts Strait instability" by William Lowther said: "The Brookings Institution says that China has not reciprocated the goodwill shown by President Ma Ying-jeou." Liu Shih-chung, a visiting fellow at Brookings' Center for Northeast Asian Policy Studies, wrote an opinion piece, not a study, on US Secretary of State Clinton's visit to China, which Brookings published. Liu's commentary does not represent the opinion of Brookings, which takes no institutional position on substantive issues. The Taipei Times regrets the error.
