Taipei, May 11 (CNA) President Ma Ying-jeou on Monday reiterated his cross-
strait policy of using the “1992 consensus” as the basis for maintaining the peaceful status quo between Taiwan and China.
In a meeting with Raymond Burghardt, chairman of the Board of Trustees of the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT), Ma said the basic cross-Taiwan Strait policy of the Republic of China is to continue the peaceful development of ties between Taiwan and China based on the 1992 consensus.
The 1992 consensus is a tacit agreement reached in Hong Kong in 1992 between Taiwanese and Chinese negotiators that there is only one China but both sides are free to interpret what that means. [FULL STORY]
