The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) caucus yesterday called on Chinese
Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) not to sign any agreements with China, amid speculation that Hung might propose a peace treaty at a meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) today.
Ahead of the annual forum between the KMT and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in Beijing today, the caucus reiterated that it is a party-to-party event and warned Hung not to cross the “red line” by proposing bilateral agreements without government authorization, DPP caucus chief executive Wu Ping-jui (吳秉叡) said.
According to the Act Governing Relations Between the People of the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area (兩岸人民關係條例), Taiwanese individuals and organizations are prohibited from entering into any political agreement with China unless authorized by the government, Wu said. [FULL STORY]
