From one news reports:
Taiwan may back away from its boycott of the placing of a Chinese judge on the World Trade Organization's top legal panel if the island is assured of fair treatment, a Taiwanese official said Sunday.
Taiwan on Sunday set a condition for ending its boycott of the first Chinese judge at the World Trade Organization (WTO): she must promise fair treatment of Taiwan.
Taiwan's government said Sunday it would stop boycotting the appointment of a Chinese judge to the World Trade Organisation's top court if its fears of possible bias by the Asian giant were addressed.
"As long as our concerns are clarified, we could cease the boycott," Phoebe Yeh, Taiwan's foreign ministry spokeswoman, told AFP.
