Taiwan’s China affairs minister resigns


TAIPEI: Taiwan’s minister for China affairs announced his resignation on Tuesday to take responsibility for forcing his former deputy to resign last year after suspecting that he had leaked official secrets. Wang Yu-chi, the head of the Cabinet’s Mainland Affairs Council, said at a press conference that he felt sorry for the social turmoil caused by the case involving former MAC deputy chief Chang Hsien-yao and that he would take responsibility for it. Wang’s move came soon after Taipei prosecutors announced earlier on Tuesday that they would not indict Chang for allegedly leaking secrets to China because of lack of evidence.
