Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, July 13 (CNA) President Ma Ying- jeou told Taiwanese media Monday why Kuomintang presidential hopeful Hung Hsiu-chu’s “one China, common interpretation” idea does not go beyond his “one China, different interpretation” policy toward China.
Deputy Legislative Speaker Hung Hsiu-chu is likely to get the ruling party’s nomination for the 2016 presidential election next Sunday. Her China policy proposal has therefore attracted much attention.
Meeting Taiwanese press on the first leg of his three-nation Central America and Caribbean visit, Ma said Hung’s and his China policy mantras have one thing in common: both are stating there is only one China.
The difference lies in his “different interpretation” of what “one China” means to China and to Taiwan, Ma said, insisting that to Taiwan, it means the Republic of China. [FULL STGORY]
