President Tsai Ing-Wen was interviewed by international media. Concerning the call with US President-elect Donald Trump, she said that having a phone call with Trump did not mean that there would be any great policy change between Taiwan and the US. The New York Times reported that former senator Bob Dole was the driving force behind the call and that he received $140 thousand US Dollars from a public relations company to arrange the call and, further, had worked with the Trump camp during the campaign to arrange friendly relations with Taiwan. The Taiwan Presidential Office has denied this report. The New York Times reported that former senator Bob Dole was the driving force behind the Tsai-Trump phone call. Disclosure documents for a law firm show that Dole worked for a public relations firm as an advisor between the Trump team and Taiwan's officials to meet with them and assist in putting language favorable to Taiwan on the Republican website. The media report also stated that the PR company received money transfers totaling US$140,000 from May to October. The Presidential Office denied that the phone call was related to any effort by a PR company. ==ALEX HUANG Presidential Office Spokesperson== Services by a PR company had nothing to do with the planning of the phone call. Concerning the phone contact, we contacted the Trump team directly. This has nothing to do with a PR company. On Dec. 6, President Tsai met with a group of US media and emphasized the positive Taiwan-US relationship helped maintain peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region and across the Taiwan Strait. Tsai also mentioned the phone call did not represent a change in US policy to Taiwan. Speaking at the Legislative Yuan on Dec. 7, Director General of the National Security Bureau, Peng Sheng-chu said that Trump's foreign policy would be unclear until he actually took office. ==TSAI SHE-YING DPP legislator== Based on your reports would you say that Taiwan-US relations will continue to strengthen or was this just a flash in the pan and things will now return to the previous level? ==PENG SHENG-CHU Director General of the National Security Bureau== Trump is positive towards President Tsai and towards Taiwan, but Trump is yet to be officially inaugurated and only after Jan. 20, when his cabinet is officially in place will we know the direction of his policy in the Asia Pacific region. According to Reuters, China's Foreign Minister has said that if Tsai visits Guatemala next month, it hopes that the US will not allow her to transit in the US, so as not to send any erroneous messages to Taiwan aspirations for independence. The Presidential Office made no comment on Tsai's upcoming trip, but said it would inform the public of any decisions on either the President or Vice President's international travel plans.
