The National Security Council (NSC; Chinese: 國家安全會議; pinyin: Guójiā Ᾱnquán Huìyì; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Kok-ka An-choân Hōe-gī) is an organ of the Republic of China (Taiwan) to advise on issues related to national security directly under the chairmanship of the President.[2]

Members of the NSC also consist of the Vice President, the Premier, the heads of key ministries, the Chief of the General Staff, the NSC Secretary-General and the Director-General of the National Security Bureau.

History[edit]

During the fourth meeting of the first session of the National Assembly in March 1966 in Taipei, the temporary provision effective during the Period of Mobilization for the Suppression of Communist Rebellion was revised.

The fourth clause of this amendment authorized the President to establish organs for mobilization to suppress the rebellion of the Communist Party of China, determine policies related to the period of mobilization and deal with war politics. President Chiang Kai-shek ordered Huang Shao-ku, Wang Yun-wu, Chang Chi-yun and Chiang Ching-kuo to organize a small preparatory committee to establish a National Security Council and to draft an organizational program.

In February 1967, President Chiang promulgated an organizational outline for a National Security Council during the mobilization period. Huang Shao-ku was chosen to be the first secretary general and Chiang Ching-kuo was placed in charge of the key works. This marked the establishment of the NSC.
