"Sunday marks the 70th anniversary of Taiwan's recovery from Japanese occupation. Taiwan leader Ma Ying-jeou, at a commemorative event in Taiwan, stressed the role of the government of the Republic of China in recovering Taiwan. Ma also admitted that Japanese colonists had contributed to the island, but he asked Japan to face up to its atrocities and correct its view of history.

Other veterans of the ruling Kuomintang Party (KMT) have also made remarks on the event. Hau Pei-tsun emphasized how the entire Chinese nation, under the leadership of Chiang, won the war; Chu Li-luan, the party's nominee for the next year's election, showed concerns about what the opposing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) would think about the event, on which the DPP's nominee Tsai Ing-wen had not made any comment as of press time."
