[뉴스메이커] The former President of Taiwan, Ma Ying-jeou, is visiting China for the first time in 74 years
Recognizing the person who is at the heart of the matter, is.
Former and current officials of Taiwan’s first authority, equivalent to our country’s president, attract attention by showing divergent diplomatic moves.
The former President of Taiwan, Ma Ying-jeou, visited China for the first time in 74 years, while the current President of Taiwan Tsai Ing-wen will visit the United States soon.
Today’s newsmaker will look at the meaning of both former and current No. 1 players.
These two people you see now are former No. 1 people in Taiwan.
Former Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou served as Taiwan’s 12th and 13th president from 2008 to 2016 and is also famous for having a historic cross-strait summit with President Xi Jinping.
Unlike Tsai Ing-wen, the current president of Taiwan, he is also known for his pro-Chinese leanings.
On the other hand, Tsai Ing-wen, the current president of Taiwan, is anti-Chinese and wants Taiwanese independence.
Recently, the mixed movements of the two people are increasing tension in Taiwan.
In particular, this is the first time in 74 years that the former President of Taiwan, Ma Ying-jeou, has visited China.
Since Chiang Kai-shek, Taiwan’s first president, was defeated by the Chinese Communist Party in the Chinese Civil War in 1949, no former or current president has visited China.
It is also worth noting that the visit to China took place at a strange time when the possibility that the Communist Party of China could interfere in next year’s presidential election is being raised.
On the other hand, the current President of Taiwan Tsai Ing-wen, who has continued to sharpen the edge with President Xi Jinping, is doing the exact opposite.
President Tsai is scheduled to visit Guatemala, a country that has diplomatic relations with Central America.
On the way back and forth, the possibility of meeting the US House of Representatives via New York and Los Angeles, respectively, is discussed.
In response, China is also protesting strongly at this time.
These various actions by both current and former leaders are attracting more attention before the presidential election in January next year.
With the growing conflict between the US and China, where will the future of Taiwan be?
Who will Taiwanese voters support, the former president who chose to go to China or the current president who chose to go to the United States?
Until now, I was a ‘newsmaker’.
