Mainland China visitEdit


In 2005, Su accompanied Kuomintang Chairperson Lien Chan to visit Nanjing in Jiangsu to meet with the high officials of Communist Party of China.[2]


In June 2013, Su and delegates led by Kuomintang (KMT) Honorary Chairman Wu Po-hsiung visited China and met with Communist Party of China Secretary-General Xi Jinping. The delegation included KMT Vice Chairpersons Hung Hsiu-chu and Huang Min-hui. This was his first visit to China after he left the National Security Council (NSC), citing that the ROC law prohibits him to visit China at least three years after he had left his NSC post.[3]
