Beijing, Dec. 31 (ANI): Chinese President Hu Jintao has offered six proposals to promote the peaceful development of the cross-Strait relationship.
In a speech to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the mainland’’s “Message to Compatriots in Taiwan” here on Wednesday, Hu said the mainland is willing to discuss with Taiwan proper and reasonable arrangement for Taiwan’’s participation in international organizations, as long as this does not create a scenario of “two Chinas” or “China and Taiwan.”
Although the two sides of the Strait have been split since 1949 by a civil war, the political confrontation between them did not change the fact that they belonged to one China, Xinhua quoted Hu, as saying. “Under a common understanding of ”one China”, anything can be talked about between the two sides,” he said.
“Anything that is conducive to peaceful development across the Strait, we will greatly promote. Anything that harms it, we will firmly oppose,” he added. (ANI)
