Ma’s One country, two areas OK with BeijingPosted: May 31, 2012 | |
Xinhua says that Yang Yi, a spokesman from the State Council Taiwan Affairs Office, said the mainland was not surprised to hear Taiwan leader Ma Ying-jeou’s recent use of the phrase “one country, two areas” to describe cross-Strait relations. It is consistent with Ma’s previous policies.
Yang said: Beijing considers any statements, ideas or policies that adhere to the fact that both sides of the Taiwan Strait are parts of one China to be positive and conducive to the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations.
