BEIJING (Reuters) – It was meant to be China's answer to the Nobel Peace Prize, a timely riposte to the honoring of jailed dissident Liu Xiaobo. But the winner of the first "Confucius Peace Prize" didn't even bother to show up. Instead, it was left to a scared-looking girl, whom organizers did not properly identify, to collect a stack of bills for the $15,000 cash prize meant for former Taiwan vice-president Lien Chan.

pretty funny story if you ask me. i am happy though that they chose to offer this prize to a former taiwanese politician who promotes peace between the two countries.

poor little girl though, suddenly thrown in to such a strange spot.



she'll probably look back and laugh at this picture in 20 years. world, meet your latest force for peace in the world.

Lien Chan deserves that prize ,he really did a lot on the cross-straits exchanges... As to Liu ,he is just a coward that is used by the ones that have ulterior motives.
