Editorial:Tsai Ing-wen's inauguration

【明報專訊】TSAI ING-WEN was sworn into her second term in Taiwan's presidential inauguration ceremony on May 20. With a storm brewing in the international arena and rivalry between China and the US gaining intensity by the day, the Taiwan Strait has become a tinderbox.

It is unlikely for the frosty cross-strait relations to thaw and the deadlock to be broken.
