Mainland: City to City Exchanges to Be Conducted Also under 1992 Consensus

Fan Liqing (范麗青), spokeswoman of the Mainland's Taiwan Affairs Office (TAO), stated that the 1992 Consensus was the political foundation of cross-Strait relations, adding that Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je's statement that "both sides of the Strait are like a big family" would benefit cross-Strait exchanges and cooperation. Fan made the above remarks in response to the question of whether the Twin City Forum between Taipei and Shanghai would continue be held since Ko Wen-je had previously said that he did not know what the 1992 Consensus meant.

 

With regard to the DPP's establishment of cross-Strait committees in the local cities under DPP administration, and whether the cities on both sides could conduct exchanges under the prerequisite of recognizing the 1992 Consensus, Fan stated that the Mainland had consistent and clear policies toward the DPP, adding that the Mainland held a positive attitude toward all cross-Strait interactions, including exchanges between cities on both sides of the Strait.  

 

She pointed out that the core of the mutual political foundation of "upholding the 1992 Consensus and opposing Taiwan independence" was "identifying that both the Mainland and Taiwan belong to one China." Therefore, as long as a political party or group in Taiwan agreed with this point, there would be no hurdles in interacting with the Mainland, Fan concluded.
