Taiwan on Sunday condemned what it said were “fallacious comments” by China following the self-governing island’s presidential and parliamentary election the previous day. The verbal sparring did not bode well for the future of Taiwan’s relations with China under the winner, President-elect Lai Ching-te, or for China’s relations with the US.


The US said it has asked two former officials to go to Taiwan this week for post-election meetings with political leaders, a move that will likely displease China. Lai’s victory means the Democratic Progressive Party will hold presidency for a third 4-year term.
