China's Mainland Wishes Taiwan Compatriots A Peaceful Life and WorkThe current chaotic situation in Taiwan is not that the Chinese mainland would like to see, said Wang Zaixi, deputy director of the Taiwan Affairs Office under the State Council on Thursday in Singapore. The mainland wishes that the Taiwan compatriots may enjoy a secured social environment, live a peaceful life and work happily, and that Taiwan's economy will see a steady development.
Wang made the above statement during an interview with the journalists after he delivered a speech at the special lecture held by Chinese embassy in Singapore. In his speech titled "One-China principle is the foundation and premise in developing the cross-Straits relationship and peacefully reunification of China", he clarified the principle, stand and related policies of the Chinese government in settling the Taiwan issue and answered questions from the audience.
Wang said that an important reason for the current disorderly situation in Taiwan is that the new leaders of Taiwan authorities failed to handle the cross-Straits relationship properly after they came onto the stage. They failed to recognize the one-China principle. That made the Taiwan compatriots lack of confidence towards Taiwan's future development. The residents in the Island feel short of tranquility and security.
China's mainland has never meddled in any party strife of the different parties in Taiwan island, Wang said, all that we oppose is "Taiwan's independence". The mainland would like to get in touch and conduct exchanges with them provided they adhere to the one-China principle and the goal for China's reunification.
Wang Zaixi also pointed out that Taiwan should reach a consensus on the one-China principle. This is a very important factor for Taiwan to remain stable and see a steady development in economy. The negotiations and talks between the two sides of the Straits can be resumed at once so long as Taiwan authorities recognize the one-China principle clearly and openly, but not ambiguously and privately.
