Taiwan retired military officers launch golf tour in China: Liberty Times

The opposition DPP Legislator Chen Ting-fei noted yesterday that Taiwan’s national security will be exposed to immediate threats as more and more retired high-ranking military officers launch tours on China soil, which used to be the forbidden area for confidential concerns, according to Liberty Times report.

Reports said that a horde of retired military officers, led by former Admiral Huang Hsing-chiang, arrived in Nanjing, an ancient capital city in China history, to launch a tour combining friendly golf match with former officers of People's Liberation Army and a trip to Chung Shang Mausoleum, a memorial hall for Sun Yat-sen, the founding father of the Republic of China. Chen noted that the meetings between cross-strait military officers become normal because of vague attitudes of the ruling KMT. The government must do something to prevent secrets of national defense from leaking.

Responding to the grievances toward the trip, the Ministry of National Defense (MND) noted yesterday that the government hopes these retirees can restrain themselves for security concerns despite their civilian status.
