Chen: Retrocession Day about self-rule – Chiu Yu-tzu

From Taipei Times:

“The real meaning of `retrocession’ is Taiwanese having the freedom to rule their own country.”

The invitations issued to opposition party leaders and retired generals to attend China’s “Taiwan Retrocession Day” were the latest part of China’s “united front” strategy and a blatant attempt to swallow up Taiwan, President Chen Shui-bian (Èô≥Ê∞¥ÊâÅ) said yesterday.

The president made the remarks while receiving foreign guests who are participating in talks hosted by the Taiwan Thinktank on US-Japan-Taiwan relations.

Chen told his guests that the Chinese Nationalist Party’s (KMT) attempt to equate the “retrocession” of Taiwan after World War II with its return to China was nonsensical.

“It was political dogma rather than historical truth,” Chen said.
