In an exclusive interview, Secretary-General Wellington Koo of the National Security Council indicated that the United States is adopting an ambiguous strategy of "not explicating but not ruling out intervention" and uses "advance deployment" to show hard power deterrence around the Taiwan Strait. In addition to making China aware of the cost of war, the United States also does not want to let China have the excuse to accuse Washington of altering the status quo. In terms of U.S.-Taiwan military affairs, the United States had indeed spent considerable effort to strengthen Taiwan's self-defense resilience.
When asked about U.S. Representative Seth Moulton's idea about blowing up the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) in the event of China's invasion of Taiwan, Koo stated that he couldn't understand what the comments meant. This topic had never appeared in previous wargame simulations.

The Executive Yuan clarified that the decommissioning schedule of each nuclear power plant is carried out according to the original plan, and there is no consideration for extending service. Kuomintang (KMT) presidential candidate Hou Yu-ih stated that nuclear power is an option and will lay out a complete energy policy in July.

Ko also had a heart-to-heart talk with Gou at the seaside in the evening, and Gou said that he and Ko shared a "solemn pledge." The contents of their conversation attracted much attention. Ko stated that they talked about seeking support but did not touch upon cooperating for 2024 or the issue of selecting a running mate. The conversation centered around Gou's investments.

The initial batch of agreements of the U.S.-Taiwan Initiative on 21st Century Trade has been signed, covering five issues including customs and trade facilitation, regulatory practices, domestic regulation of services, anti-corruption practices, and small and medium-sized enterprises. The seven issues which remain to be negotiated include labor, the environment, agriculture, digital trade, standards, state enterprises, and non-market policies and practices. The Initiative will be sent to the Legislative Yuan for notification rather than for a substantive review in accordance with treaty norms under the Conclusion of Treaties Act. For this reason, civil groups including the Taiwan Confederation of Trade Unions criticized the agreement has a "black-box" operation.

The news has recently come to light. At present, about 300 mainland students have entered Taiwan.
