The Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) will continue to be a “second-track” mechanism for cross-strait peace, KMT Vice Chairman Hau Lung-bin (郝龍斌) said yesterday as he attended the fifth Yunnan-Taiwan Economic and Cultural Exchange Seminar in China.
Hau delivered an opening speech at the conference, calling the so-called “1992 consensus” the foundation for the development of the cross-strait relationship in the past two decades.
According to a version of the speech Hau posted on Facebook, he said: “Although there were ups and downs during the years, we have been moving in the direction of peaceful development, especially in the realm of cross-strait economic exchanges.” [FULL STORY]
