    Zhang insists again on the necessary of the Service Trade Pact with P.R.C. is a prerequisite for other countries to have will of pact negotiation with Taiwan.


    On the other hand, Raymond F. Burghardt, currently the Chairman of American Institute in Taiwan declared position of U.S. in June 5th, 2010 that there is no need to have any permission from P.R.C. before having F.T.A. (Free Trade Agreement) negotiation with U.S..
