台灣人有夠悲哀. 9.25毛跟那些統派裝柯粉希望台灣成為中國一部份當然說美國反對台灣獨立. 事實上美國並不反對台灣獨立好嘛. 不支持跟反對是兩回事.

I think it would be helpful to clarify this, you know, as we see it, pretty important issue. It's not just semantics, because when you say you don't support, or when you say you oppose, there is some difference.

拜託, ok.

Randy Schriver, Deputy Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs
Foreign Press Center Briefing

MR. DENIG: Let's take Norman over here.

QUESTION: Norman Fu with The China Times. Mr. Schriver, I'd like to pursue the previous first question a little bit. I think the question is quite clear. We want to know whether top U.S. officials, including the President himself, in private meetings and conversations, ever told the Chinese in such language as, "We oppose Taiwan independence," because publicly, the U.S. position, as you are doing now, is always,
"We do not support Taiwan independence," or non-support of Taiwan independence.

I think it would be helpful to clarify this, you know, as we see it, pretty important issue. It's not just semantics, because when you say you don't support, or when you say you oppose, there is some difference. I'm aware the fact that Secretary Armitage explained this a year or so ago in Tokyo, but still, that doesn't seem to have put the whole issue to rest. So, as I said, it would be helpful for you -- I'm mindful of what you said, you are not always present at those meetings, but still, you have access to the transcripts and briefings, whatever. So, simply put, I still want to know precisely what is the operative language insofar as Taiwan independence is concerned? Is it, we do not support, or we oppose?

MR. SCHRIVER: Well, let me speak with as much clarity as I'm capable of: Tthe policy as determined by the President, and the policy of this Administration, the United States does not support Taiwan independence.

MR. DENIG: That's pretty clear! Gentleman in the first row here, please.
