Regarding Ma Ying-jeou's visit to Spratlys, one thing that should have triggered an earth quake but has been totally missed by Taiwan's media:

At a press conference after his visit yesterday (2016-01-28), Ma said: "Regarding the sovereignty claim to the South (China) Sea, the ROC ("中華民國") had already officially announced (it) in 1947; later, the Chinese Communist regime ("中共政權") inherited ("繼承了") the claim of the KMT government ("國民政府"; NOTE: he didn't say "ROC government" - "中華民國政府"); therefore, of course, both sides (of the Taiwan Strait) share the same stand on the claim to the South (China) Sea, we didn't particularly made an effort to take the same stand."

The key wording that shocked me was "[CCP regime] has inherited ('繼承了') [KMT regime]". This is an official announcement of the death of ROC and an official recognition of CCP regime as China's legitimate government.

Am I reading it wrong?

To read his wording at the press conference yesterday (2016-01-28), see the report of Liberty Times (in Chinese though; see the first paragraph), link below:

This visit is meant to be much much more than meats the eyes. The Chinese Nationalism Fundamentalist Ma Ying-Jeou won't rest without a resistance of "Boxers' Rebellion" Geist.

Possibly, that's really shocking. If true, what will he say about Taiwan when he steps down?

I don't believe the LT has correctly transcribed what he said. Is there another source??

Ma apparently made his "inheritance" comment to answer a foreign reporter's question. That's why you can't find it in the transcription of his speech.

The author of this opinion piece also believes that Ma said the CPC has inherited the claim.
