Dear Mrs. Madeleine Korbel Albright,
Mr. Newt Gingrich,
In Taiwan; the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) announced yesterday
(August 1, 1998) that it will indefinitely suspend its engagement with mainland China to
protest Beijing's handling of the kidnapping and murder of DPP Kaousiung city council
deputy Lin Ti-chuan.
DPP will take steps to push the ROC government to stop cultural, athletic and other
social exchanges across the Taiwan Strait.
DPP chairman Lin Yi-hsiung, condemned communist China's consistent suppression of human
rights and failure to protest personal safety of visitors from Taiwan. Lin urged local
people not to make pleasure strips to that risky, dangerous country.
In the handling of Ms Lin Ti-chuan's case, the Chinese government has shown ignorance
to human rights and individual safety.
About cross-strait's meeting; Beijing has repeatedly insisted that Taipei
abandon the earlier process of technical talks in favor of starting up new political talks
Meanwhile, Taipei is not willing to submit to Beijing's insistence that the
People's Republic of China is the sole legal Chinese government, to which the province of

to hot point..
With mainland China's social order deteriorating opposition legislator Hsiao Yu-cheng
urged the Mainland Affair Council(MAC) which charts Taiwan's policy toward the mainland to
establish a regular warning system for the reference of would be mainland-bound business
people and ordinary travelers.
So, we further said the two sides of the Taiwan Strait should sign an agreement on join
anti-crime operations and anti-military attack to better protect the physical safety and
property of the people on both sides of the strait.
In early July, U.S. President Bill Clinton visited mainland China and loudly proclaimed
his belief in democracy and human rights to a land.
The "three no's" hurt Taiwan too much that the economic miracle of Taiwan
demonstrate to the people on the mainland that they can have a better life with amarket
economy. And the democratization of Taiwan proves that traditional Chinese culture is
compatible with democracy, freedom and human rights. Practically; Taiwan's miracles are
concretized by divided government from Beijing's communism's.
"What we on Taiwan have done all along in preserve, for China, a piece of land
that is free from communist life." ROC President Lee Teng-hui said. He noted, saying
that Taiwan has developed its economy and embraced democracy for a future reunited China.
On above reasons; we need your help to convince Beijing government, what is the right

Any countries believed that the democratic mainland China will be a welfare for the
