Cross-Straits Dialogue Based on One China Principle

The Chinese Mainland will continue endeavoring to promote the resumption of cross-Straits dialogue and negotiations on the basis of the one China principle and has no bias against any particular person to talk to, nor will hesitate to talk just because some one has come to power, CPPCC top leader Jia Qinglin said Friday.


"What the mainland is concerned about is his policies and his attitude towards the existing basis of cross-Straits negotiations. Regardless of his past rhetoric and actions, as long as he starts now to unequivocally recognize the 1992 consensus that upholds the one China principle, the cross-Straits dialogue and negotiations could resume right away, and any matter could be put on the table," said Jia Qinglin, chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) and also a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC).


Addressing a meeting held to commemorate the 10th anniversary of former Chinese President Jiang Zemin's speech entitled "Continuing to endeavor for the accomplishment of the grand cause of reunification of the motherland", Jia said that though the two sides of the Taiwan Straits not yet reunited, the fact has never changed that both the mainland and Taiwan belong to one and the same China. This is the status quo in cross-Straits relations, he added.


Back in the early 1990s, the Taiwan authorities accepted the one China principle and recognized that "the mainland and Taiwan are both the territories of China" and "it is the shared responsibility for the Chinese on both sides of the Straits to realize the reunification of the nations," Jia recalled.


Based on this common ground, the two sides started consultation and dialogue and reached the 1992 consensus by verbally acknowledging that "both sides of the Straits stick to the one China principles," he added.


The mainland is ready to explore new ways of problem solving through consultation with all political parties, organizations and representative personalities in Taiwan who recognize the 1992 consensus, oppose "Taiwan independence" and support the development of cross-Straits relations, according to Jia.


As long as the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) relinquishes its "Taiwan independence constitution" and stops its separatist activities, we are willing to respond positively by making contacts with it, Jia stressed.
