Premier Lin Chuan (林全) called for goodwill in cross-strait relations on Tuesday, a day
after Chinese officials issued strong warnings to Taiwan against pursuing independence.
Chinese Premier Li Keqiang (李克強) said in a policy report to China’s National People’s Congress meeting on Monday that Beijing would absolutely not accept anyone separating Taiwan from China in any way, shape or form.
Li’s remarks were sterner than those in his report last year, in which he described China and Taiwan as a family.
Monday’s plea for goodwill from Lin came in response to remarks by Zhang Zhijun (張志軍), director of China’s Taiwan Affairs Office. [FULL STORY]
