UK Foreign Secretary Mr. David Miliband comments on the Taiwan presidential elections
“The successful Presidential elections in Taiwan today are testament to Taiwan's democracy.
The forthcoming change of administration is a real opportunity to renew efforts to improve cross-Strait relations. I hope that the Chinese Government and the new administration will now engage in direct dialogue to resolve differences and find a peaceful solution to the Taiwan question, acceptable to the populations on both sides of the Straits.”
