    China Has Its Political Request in STA Indeed, Taiwan Government Admits

    After a series of protest action against S.T.A. (Service Trade Agreement with China) ended, Wang Yuqi, chairman of the Mainland Affairs Council in Taiwan, admits as title during an interview with public media.

    As Taiwanese citizens criticize controversies from the agreement with China, Wang still insists the way to solution is the validation of S.T.A..

    "If you want the best way to solve these controversies, then the agreement shall be validated first.", said by Wang last night on an interview. "If there is need (of a revision), we can still have an urgent negotiation system."

    However, Wang also admits the doubts, when the most concerned issue about China's political plots has mentioned.

    "We have to admit that, China has its political request in the agreement.", claimed by Wang. "Still, Taiwanese citizens have to ask yourselves a question: 'When China has its political plots indeed, the best way is to refuse them, or welcome them to make a communication?'"

    As for the issue relates to T.P.P. (Trans-Pacific Partnership) negotiation whether or not is affected by protest action, Wang analyzed the relationship between China and its T.P.P. partners.

    "There are six, and five countries respectively are at the most, and the second most trade scales with China in the T.P.P. relationship.", said by Wang. "If Taiwan gets stuck in the controversies of S.T.A., these T.P.P. members will be terrified and concern their trading relationship with China."
