Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) Minister Andrew Hsia (夏立言) yesterday dismissed
speculation that Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) presidential candidate Eric Chu’s (朱立倫) campaign slogan of “One Taiwan” is a reference to the state of cross-strait relations.
Hsia was responding to Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Chuang Ruei-hsiung (莊瑞雄) at a question-and-answer session at the legislature in Taipei on whether China would regard Chu as “morally bankrupt” after the unveiling of his “One Taiwan” slogan on Sunday.
“Chu described cross-strait relations as ‘both sides belonging to one China’ at his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) in May, but now he is chanting ‘One Taiwan’ during the election season. China must think he lacks integrity,” Chuang said. [FULL STORY]
