 KMT: “One Country, Two Systems” Not Content of 1992 Consensus

With regard to an address to Taiwan on January 2 by Xi Jinping, General Secretary of the CCP, in a commemorative event in Beijing marking the 40th anniversary of issuing the “Message to Taiwan Compatriots,” and President Tsai Ing-wen’s response to Xi’s address, the KMT issued yesterday a statement as follows:

1) In accordance with the provisions of the ROC Constitution, the ROC is a sovereign, independent state. The KMT firmly opposes Taiwan independence. This is the consistent and unwavering stance the party has taken.  

2) In November 1992, Taiwan’s Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) and the Mainland’s Association for Relations Across the Taiwan Straits (ARATS), with authorization by respective governments, reached the “1992 Consensus,” i.e., “Both sides adhere to the one China principle but agree that each side is free to interpret respectively the meaning of one China.” 

3) The plan on “one country, two systems for Taiwan” proposed by Xi was not the content of the “1992 Consensus.” The two sides of the Strait are currently in a situation of “divided rule.” Therefore, at the current stage, it may be hard for “one country, two systems” to win support from majority public opinion in Taiwan. 

4) Since the DPP took power in May 2016, cross-Strait ties have become stagnant. The institutional platform between the SEF and ARATS for cross-Strait exchanges and consultations has thus been suspended, leaving numerous economic and livelihood issues across the Strait effectively unresolved.  

5) Since 2005, the KMT has maintained cross-Strait exchanges and consultations on a regular basis, resolving numerous cross-Strait issues.  

6) Cross-Strait exchanges and development must continue in a peaceful manner. People also hope that both sides of the Strait will extend and deepen exchanges.
