"The bureau listed it as a biochemical warfare agent. We have certain evidence and we have asked UN experts to look into this and that there are some areas involving China," Tsai said.

The pro-independence opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) urged the government to disclose the relevant intelligence information and demand an explanation from Beijing.


Could this be true? Or could this just be another sucker-punch to the Chinese given that Taiwan has been a breakaway territory since a civil war in 1949? The Taiwanese National Security Bureau claim they have evidence to support this. If this is true this could have resounding consequences for the Chinese.

Could be that he let it slip knowing full well he would have to retract it, but by then the damage was done and the info. was out?
Its a pretty big statement, only to have to take it back.

National Security Bureau director Tsai Chao-ming "expresses his sincere apology that his gaffe ... has caused misunderstanding and concerns," the bureau said in a statement.


They are saying they have the evidence, the reason the official apologised apparently is because of 'misunderstanding and concerns' over the reasoning behind making that statement.
