Taiwan speaker delays review of China trade pact, WSJ says

Taiwan’s Legislative Yuan Speaker Wang Jin-pyng said a review of a trade pact with China would be delayed until an oversight mechanism for such cross-strait agreements is enacted, a concession to student protesters who barricaded themselves inside the legislature three weeks ago to protest the pact, the Wall Street Journal reported Sunday.
