PRESIDENT CHEN VOWS NOT TO DEVELOP WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION
Taipei, Nov. 10 (CNA) President Chen Shui-bian said Wednesday the Republic of China government would never develop weapons of mass destruction.
He also urged mainland China to make a similar public pledge and renounce the use and development of weapons of mass destruction.
Chen made the remarks at a high-level national security meeting to discuss measures to cope with the delicate triangular Taipei-Washington-Beijing relations in the wake of the U.S. presidential election as well as how to kick-start the long-stalled dialogue across the Taiwan Strait and promote cross-strait engagements on an equal and reciprocal basis.
