Stability in the Taiwan Strait

John D. Negroponte, Deputy Secretary
Washington, DC
April 11, 2008

QUESTION: Do you welcome the dialogue between President Hu and the Vice President Siew?

DEPUTY SECRETARY NEGROPONTE: Well, as I mentioned in my remarks inside, we’re committed to stability in the Taiwan Strait. We believe that the best way to settle differences over the Taiwan Strait is by peaceful means and we think that dialogue between the People’s Republic of China and the authorities, the leaders on Taiwan, is the best way forward. So, yes, I would say that that’s a good way forward. Thank you.

QUESTION: Thank you very much, sir, appreciate it.

DEPUTY SECRETARY NEGROPONTE: You’re welcome.

QUESTION: That’s great. Thank you.
