The top leader of the Communist Party of China, Xi Jinping, has responded in a positive way to requests by the head of Taiwan’s ruling Kuomintang, Eric Chu, following their meeting on May 4 in Beijing, reports our Chinese-language sister paper China Times, citing mainland academics.
Xi’s response in five points have covered each issue that Taiwanese people at each level of society care about, said Ni Yongjie, an academic at the Shanghai Institute of Taiwan Studies. The upgraded version of the “one China” concept that does away with the “respective interpretations” addendum and proposed peace framework are also “super stable structures” upon which to build peaceful development, Ni said.
Ni said that Xi’s statements were all addressed to the KMT and all his propositions were responding to the needs of Taiwanese people, including his views on Taiwan’s participation in the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and other regional economic cooperation organizations. [FULL STORY]
