ARATS feels Taiwan must act on its own on service pact, CNA says

Chen Deming {陳德銘}, chairman of the mainland’s Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits, said on Monday that his trip to Taiwan from Tuesday will not involve an attempt to talk the island into passing the pending cross-strait service trade agreement, Central News Agency reported. Chen, who will lead an economic and trade delegation to Taiwan, said Taiwan should find solutions on the issue by itself. He also said more negotiations are needed before both sides can set up official representative offices on each other’s territory.
