Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文)
yesterday said that she regrets the “gap” between reality and a media report on a US academic’s remarks about the so-called “1992 consensus,” urging the media to be more cautious when publishing reports.
When attending an Atlantic Council meeting last week on next year’s presidential election, Bonnie Glaser, a senior adviser for Asia at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said that, during a scheduled meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping (習近平) and US President Barack Obama in Washington next month, one of the messages that Xi would convey to Obama might be that in order to have cross-strait stability, there must be an acceptance by Taiwan’s next president of the “1992 consensus” and of the concept of “one China.”
However, the Chinese-language United Daily News published a report on Glaser’s remarks in a story with the headline quoting Glaser as saying: “Taiwan’s next president must accept the ‘1992 consensus.’”
