Taiwanese presidential candidate Tsai Ing-wen’s statement said that that she will continue to
promote cross-Taiwan Strait peace under the current Republic of China Constitution if elected does not mean she has embraced the 1992 Consensus, a US scholar said Tuesday.
“I think Tsai’s statement that she seeks to build cross-strait relations on the foundation built on the accumulated outcomes and the achievements of the last three ROC presidents over the past more than 20 years is important,” said Bonnie Glaser, an expert on China affairs and cross-strait issues at the CSIS.
“It seems to me that this includes the outcomes of the talks held in 1992. It doesn’t mean that she has embraced the 1992 Consensus, but it implies that she accepts that there was a positive outcome of those talks that, along with other developments (including the achievements of the Ma Ying-jeou administration) should be treasured and secured,” she added.
