Want China Times
By: CNA and Staff Reporter
Tsai Ing-wen, chairwoman of Taiwan’s main opposition Democratic Progressive Party
and the party’s 2016 presidential candidate, held a closed-door forum with US academics in Los Angeles on Saturday on maintaining the cross-Taiwan Strait status quo.
After listening to her ideas, most of those present said they make sense, said Clayton Dube, director of the US-China Institute at the University of South California Annenberg Journalism School. Dube declined to elaborate on what Tsai discussed at the forum, as DPP Secretary-General Joseph Wu told reporters that “what was discussed will not be made public.”
Asked about the US view of the so-called 1992 Consensus, a tacit understanding between representatives of Taipei and Beijing in which the two sides accept the idea of “one China,” but retain their own respective interpretations, Dube said the US accepts whatever is agreed upon and conducted in peaceful means between Taiwan and China.
