Taiwan's Tsai paints China as aggressor in India, South China Sea

President calls for talks with Beijing; says island will keep boosting defenses

TAIPEI -- Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen painted Beijing as an aggressor in disputes from the South China Sea to the China-India border, while at the same time saying she was willing to hold cross-strait talks.

Being careful not to directly name China, Tsai said in a National Day speech on Saturday in front of the Presidential Office in Taipei that "for some time we have all been paying close attention to changes in regional security."
