Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je
Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je

Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je had earlier described the relationship between Taiwan and China as ‘one family’. This was obviously might by a lot of angry reactions from the people in Taiwan. However, Mayor Ko was praised by China’s Taiwan Affairs office. This is even after the oppression of police targeting the anti-extradition bill protestors in Hong Kong.

It is found out that more than 70 people were injured when the police cleared areas outside Legislative Council in Hong Kong from protestors. The protestors fear that it the extradition bill which is proposed turns into a law then it will allow political opponents of the Chinese communists to be extradited to China.

Now, Taipei Mayer Ko says that he stands by his previous description and adds that “I feel this is a very peaceful attitude, I feel it’s good, I should insist on it,” This was told by the mayor of Taipei at Taipei City Council which was quoted by Liberty Times.

However, Taipei Mayor Ko said that he felt “embarrassed that he received praise from Chinese government’s Taiwan Affairs Office speaking at the news conference. A spokesman from Taiwan Affairs Office named An Fengshan appreciated the outspoken Mayor for giving a statement that Taiwan and China ties were not foreign nor international relation but “special cross-strait relations”.

Mayor Ko also says that there was nothing political about his statement and he explained that his term “one family” was a basic attitude in favour of peaceful development of relations between the two countries.

It is believed that the Mayor of Taipei will announce his decision to run for the post of President of Taiwan later this year. However, he is already marred by criticism as he has been described as an “ostrich burying its head in the sand” for his statement and attitude towards China.
