Taiwan Terminates China Unification Body – AP

From the AP, via the New York Times (link):

Taiwanese President Chen Shui-bian on Monday terminated the governmental committee responsible for unifying with rival China, significantly deepening tensions with Beijing and defying opinion in Washington.

After a one-hour meeting with the National Security Council, Chen announced he was ending the National Unification Council and doing away with its guidelines, which commit Taiwan to eventual unification with the mainland.
