Taiwan Leader Urged to Stop Blurring, Evading One-China PrincipleThe Xinhua News Agency published a signed commentary Friday urging the Taiwan leader to show his sincerity and goodwill on cross-Straits ties by ceasing to blur and evade the One-China Principle.
The commentary, titling "It Is Hard to Resolve Problems by Blurring and Evading One-China Principle," continued Xinhua's criticism of the Taiwan leader for his blurred and evasive attitude toward the principle in his May 20 speech.
According to his speech, the differences in the political systems and life-styles across the Straits have created " contradictory walls," though he agreed, that "the people of the two sides share the same origins of blood, culture, and history."
In the speech, the Taiwan leader mentioned in the same breath Taiwan's "local culture," "Chinese culture and world culture," and he also called Taiwan "Formosa" and the Taiwan people "offspring of Formosa," according to the commentary.
By saying these things, the Taiwan leader intended to separate Taiwan from China, it said.
The Taiwan leader called the One-China Principle a "future issue" in his speech, replacing the word "proposal," which he used in the past to describe his view of the principle.
The expression "future issue" indirectly denies the historic, de facto and de jure nature of the One-China Principle, which indicates his insistence on the position of "Taiwan independence," the commentary said.
The Taiwan leader's speech resulted in a local stock market plunge in the island, the commentary said, noting that this shows the speech has aroused doubts among the Taiwan people. The commentary reiterated the position of the Chinese government on the One-China Principle, that everything is negotiable under the principle.
Evasion will not resolve the issue, and blurring is not helpful for the establishing of trust between the two sides, the commentary concluded.
