The Mainland Affairs Council (MAC), Taiwan’s top China policy-making body, says
the two sides of the Taiwan Strait should consider “structural cooperation.” That’s the word from MAC Deputy Minister Lin Cheng-yi on Friday.
Lin was speaking at the opening of a seminar on the 30th anniversary of cross-strait exchanges. Lin said China has unilaterally suspended systematic cross-strait negotiations but Taiwan is still working to keep the channels of communication open. Lin said the two sides should set aside their differences, find common ground and hold talks without preconditions.
Lin also urged China to jointly develop a new model of cross-strait interactions.
