[TAIPEI] Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen on Monday called on China to engage in talks with Taiwan, pledging to maintain peace with the island's giant neighbour.

"The two sides should sit down and talk as soon as possible. As long as they are conducive to the peaceful development of the two sides of the (Taiwan) Strait and to the well-being of the people on both sides of the Strait, anything can be discussed," Ms Tsai said in a National Day speech.
