President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) showed maximum flexibility and good will to China in her inauguration speech Friday, and her stance on cross-strait relations represented Taiwan’s “greatest common denominator,” Presidential Office spokesman Alex Huang (黃重諺) said.
Tsai’s speech also fulfilled the international community’s expectations of stable and peaceful cross-strait relations and upheld the bottom line of Taiwan’s sovereignty and democracy, Huang said.
The president also kept her promise to “build a consistent, predictable and sustainable cross-strait relationship,” he said.
Tsai’s inauguration speech on Friday had been widely anticipated to see how she would address Taiwan’s relations with China, especially after Beijing made moves in recent months intended to pressure her to accept the “1992 consensus.” [FULL STORY]
