Cross-strait Diaoyutai tie-up worries US: NSB

The U.S. government is worried by the possibility of Taiwan teaming up with China against Japan over the Diaoyutais dispute, Taipei's top intelligence official has disclosed.

Tsai Teh-sheng, head of the National Security Bureau (NSB), said the United States has on several occasions conveyed such a concern to Taiwan, which has repeatedly stressed that it will not join forces with China over the Diaoyutais row.

Tsai told lawmakers Thursday that the United States has been a key factor behind Japan's aggressiveness in handling the dispute, but Washington should be able to understand Taipei's stance.

Taiwan and Japan have maintained high-level channels for dialogue, Tsai said. Through these channels, both sides have clearly stated their stances and they know each other's bottom line, he added.

Both sides have a consensus on avoiding "conflicts," but that does not mean that they have been acting according to a script they have co-written, the intelligence official said.
