Taipei, April 11 (CNA) President Ma Ying-jeou has made it very clear that cross-strait ties refer to ties between Taiwan and China rather than relations between the Kuomintang and Communist Party of China, a spokesman for the Presidential Office said Saturday.
Charles Chen noted that Democratic Progressive Party Chairwoman Tsai Ing-wen has said that if her party wins the 2016 presidential election, it will maintain the status quo between Taiwan and China. But the so called status quo is that both sides of the strait accept the 1992 consensus and neither side will use force, seek independence or pursue reunification, Chen said. [FULL STORY]
