President Tsai Ing-wen’s (蔡英文) “historical fact of the 1992 meeting” model has failed to provide a
“script that could endure examination” and resolve the cross-strait stalemate, Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Legislator Wang Jin-pyng (王金平), the former legislative speaker, said yesterday.
Tsai has since her inauguration avoided mentioning the so-called “1992 consensus,” instead referring to a “1992 meeting,” which she said is an undeniable “historical fact.”
Wang said there is a “serious lack of mutual trust” between the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and the Chinese Communist Party, as each holds its own unalienable core interests that have turned into “red lines” that cannot be contradicted by the other side.
“Taiwan’s cross-strait strategic planning will find the most advantageous way out of this limited space. It is a titanic political project and as the DPP has become the ruling party, it should not shun its responsibility to solve the predicament,” he said. [FULL STORY]
