Tsai speaks with overseas Taiwanese supporters

Taiwan News has the story:

"The entire Taiwan society has grave concerns about the KMT government's stance toward China," she said, adding that KMT Chairman Wu Poh-hsiung (吳伯雄) was guilty of a "serious misjudgment" of a political situation.

Wu's claim, shortly after a visit to China earlier this year, that "China does not intend to fire missiles at Taiwan" was totally misguided, Tsai said.

"China may sometimes seem kind or nice to Taiwan, but such a switch in its attitude could be the result of its internal problems or changing international situations," she said.

Tsai asserted that it is necessary for the DPP to re-examine its policies and rediscover its founding spirit and ideals after its loss of power in May this year.

"In the face of Taiwan's dwindling independent sovereignty and worsening economic situation, the DPP's top priority on the current stage is to protect national sovereignty, help improve the economy and take care of the underprivileged," she stressed.

"The general public expects the DPP to safeguard Taiwan's independent sovereignty, and this is the biggest difference between the KMT and the DPP, according to poll results, " the DPP chairwoman noted.

Several surveys by the DPP also found that more than 50 percent of Taiwan's people are worried that Taiwan is on the wrong path, she said.
