Chu to be accorded same protocol as Tsai by U.S.

Washington, Nov. 3 (CNA) The United States will welcome the Kuomintang's Chairman and presidential candidate Eric Chu (???) to visit and will accord him the same protocol as it has with Chu's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) rival, a U.S. official said Tuesday. Elizabeth Trudeau, director of the Office of Press Relations at the Department of State, made the remarks in a statement issued in response to reporters' questions about the visit by Chu later this month. Trudeau said "we look forward to discussing a wide range of issues with him, just as we did with Domocratic Progressive Party candidate Tsai Ing-wen (???) in June." Trudeau also stressed that "the United States will not take sides in the election. The outcome of Taiwan's election is a matter for the people of Taiwan to decide." (By Rita Cheng and Flor Wang)
