Mainland supports military trust talks with Taiwan


08:21, March 29, 2012

BEIJING, March 28 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese mainland agrees to exchange views with Taiwan on military issues "in due time" and discuss establishing a mechanism of cross-Strait military mutual trust, a mainland official said Wednesday.

Such a mechanism is aimed at "stabilizing the situation across the Taiwan Strait and alleviating security concerns," Yang Yi, spokesman for the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, said at a regular press conference.

"We are glad to see scholars discuss the issues," Yang said, in response to questions.

When commenting on the establishment of a "cross-Strait peaceful development committee," proposed by a national political advisor from the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region earlier this month, Yang said, "Any opinions and suggestions that are conducive to cross-Strait relations can be put forward and discussed."

Furthermore, Yang said the all issues are open to discussion so long as the fact that both sides belong to one China is recognized.
