The Third United Front CCP-KMT-IX
When both sides of the Taiwan Strait are getting friendlier, one of groups is getting upset -- the Japanese right-wing groups. In May 2009, the Japanese envoy (de facto Japanese embassy in Taipei), Saito Masaki gave a speech at a university in Taiwan. In his speech, the Japanese envoy stated that the Taiwan status has “not been determined.” This statement outraged both the Ma Ying-jeou government and the mainland who issued a statement in protest. This exposes how desperate the Japanese right-wing groups are.
After growing up and studying in China and Japan, Dr. Suganuma went to the U.S. for graduate studies, earning master’s degrees at both St. John's University (in Chinese studies) and Syracuse University (in international relations) as well as a Ph.D. (in geography) from the Maxwell School of Syracuse University.
