HONG KONG, China (6 June 2000)–The ongoing conflict between China and its renegade province Taiwan reached an all-time low yesterday when it entered the realm of pop music. The Taiwanese are upset that Mainland China has banned a television soft drink commercial because the voice of Taiwanese pop diva Chang Huimei can be heard in it. Nearly 40 Taiwanese parliament members have asked the Chinese president “to understand the Taiwanese people” and to lift the ban. The diva, affectionately known as A-Mei, sang the Taiwanese national anthem during the inaugeration of new president Chan Shui-bian two weeks ago. Taiwanese officials think this is the reason behind China Mainland’s boycotting the ad. (JW)
