Q: It is reported that the Taiwan authorities will dispatch a so-called ?special envoy delegation? headed by Mr. Lee Yuan Tsech to attend American President Bush?s second-term inauguration. What comment do you have on this ?
A: We have expressed concern to the US side over relevant reports. The US side has clearly said that they have not invited nor do they recognize the so-called ?special envoy delegation? from the Taiwan authorities.
Chinese Ambassador to the US Yang Jiechi will attend President Bush's inauguration at invitation on behalf of the Chinese Government.
