President Tsai Ing-wen's administration should make a clear statement regarding its stance on the positioning of the nation and cross-strait relations, the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) said yesterday.

U.S. National Security Council Coordinator for the Indo-Pacific Kurt Campbell on Tuesday said that while Washington supports a strong unofficial relationship with Taiwan, it does not support the nation's independence.

In a statement yesterday, the KMT said the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration should clearly state its position on the positioning of the nation and cross-strait relations and avoid intensifying tensions in the region.

The Tsai administration should oppose any intrusions by force and welcome any measures conducive to regional stability while insisting that the sovereignty and related rights and interests of the Republic of China not be violated, the KMT said.
