AIT head blames cross-strait impasse on China

The visiting chairman of the American Institute in Taiwan says he believes
Beijing should take more responsibility for the stalemate in cross-strait
relations.

According to James Moriarty, President Tsai Ying-wen is a pragmatic and
reasonable leader who has tried to reach out to China and he doesn't believe
people in Washington are blaming Taiwan for the lack of cross-strait
dialogue.

Moriarty says Washington is instead encouraged every time Taiwan takes moves
in an attempt to re-start dialogue with Beijing.

The A-I-T chairman says Washington's policy on such talks remains unchanged
and the U-S wishes to see "constructive dialogue across the strait."

However, Moriarty also says Washington will not involve itself as a
cross-strait mediator as stipulated in the "Six Assurances" - which were
signed in 1982 by then-U-S President Ronald Reagan.

The policy pledges not to set a date for ending arms sales to Taiwan, not to
hold prior consultations with China regarding arms sales to Taiwan, and not
to play a mediation role between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait.
