Taipei, Nov. 13 (CNA) Nearly two-thirds of respondents to a recent poll said the institutionalization of summit meetings between the presidents of Taiwan and China would help the peaceful and stable development of cross-Taiwan Strait relations.
Some 65.9 percent of those polled thought regular meetings would contribute to peace while 23.3 percent did not, according to poll results released by the Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) on Friday.
National Chengchi University’s Election Study Center was commissioned to conduct the survey of people aged 20 or over across the country from Nov. 8 to 11 on President Ma Ying-jeou’s (馬英九) meeting with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping (習近平) on Nov. 7.
The poll found that 61.6 percent of respondents supported the principles of equality and transparency shown in the Ma-Xi meeting in Singapore and 26.1 percent did not. [FULL STORY]
