TAIPEI, Taiwan — Kuomintang (KMT) Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu met with Chinese leader Xi Jinping in
Beijing Tuesday, with Hung crediting the “1992 Consensus” with improving cross-strait and interparty relations.
In an interpretation of the consensus not used before by her predecessors, Hung said, “We should strive for the commonalities of the ‘one China’ principle while preserving the differences of meaning within it” (求一中原則之同, 存一中涵義之異).
Her statement came after KMT stalwarts — including former President Ma Ying-jeou — warned her not to de-emphasize the “different interpretations of one China” clause of the “1992 Consensus.”
At the Great Hall of the People, Xi greeted Hung and her delegation, which included KMT Vice Chairmen Steve Chan and Jason Hu. [FULL STORY]
