President condemns use of force and provocation

Taipei, May 27 (CNA) President Ma Ying-jeou on Thursday condemned any activity that undermines peace in the region and spoke out against the use of force or provocation.
Ma made the comments after being asked about recent tensions between North and South Korea during an interview with the Doha, Qatar-based Al Jazeera TV at the Presidential Office on Thursday.
Ma said that Taiwan would support efforts by South Korea, the United States and Japan to restore regional stability and that it is willing to join the international community in taking action to prevent conflict and maintain peace and prosperity in the region.
Tensions on the Korean Peninsula rose recently after Seoul on May 20 accused Pyongyang of sinking one of its naval patrol ships with a torpedo on March 26, causing the deaths of 46 crewmen.
