Kadeer accepts invite to Taiwan

Cross-Straits relations are facing yet another test as Uygur separatist Rebiya Kadeer has accepted an invitation to visit Taiwan, less than one month after the Dalai Lama's visit to the island.

The invitation was extended to Kadeer by the Taiwan Youth Anti-Communist Corps following a telephone discussion with Kadeer on Tuesday, AFP reported yesterday.

"Kadeer expressed her thanks for the invitation and said she will certainly visit Taiwan," Marie Lin of the organization was quoted as saying.

The pro-independence Corps, founded in June, is backed by Taiwan's pro-independence opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

"Rebiya Kadeer hopes to be able to carry out face-to-face exchanges with various groups in Taiwan," said Dilxat Raxit, a Sweden-based spokesman for the World Uygur Congress, which Kadeer heads.

He said the timing of the meetings depend on Taiwan's ability to carry out "flexible and active diplomacy".

The island's "premier" Wu Den-yih said a decision on the visit would be announced by the end of the week.

The invitation puts Taiwan's government - voted to power last year on a promise to improve ties with the mainland - in a no-win situation, according to analysts.

If Taiwan's government grants a visa to Kadeer, who is alleged to have orchestrated the deadly July 5 riot in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, the mainland will be infuriated, while pro-independence groups at home and rights groups abroad will be angered if she is not, experts said.
