Taiwan media asked Biden how to develop cross-strait relations after he took office? Response from Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council
November 11th. On the morning of November 11, the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council held a regular press conference. Zhu Fenglian, a spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, answered questions from reporters on hot issues such as cross-strait party exchanges, cross-strait military mutual trust, and cross-strait cultural exchanges.
Some reporters asked questions. I want to continue to ask about the follow-up of the US presidential election. Public opinion believes that compared with the current President Trump’s China policy, Biden’s relevant position will be relatively moderate. May I ask the spokesperson, how does the mainland assess the cross-strait relations after Biden takes power? Will it be worse, or is there a chance to develop in a more modest direction? Thank you.
Zhu Fenglian said that what needs to be emphasized is that the Taiwan issue is China’s internal affair and does not allow any outside interference. We hope that the US government will fully understand the high sensitivity of the Taiwan issue, abide by the one-China principle and the three Sino-US joint communiqués, and handle the Taiwan issue prudently and properly.
Zhu Fenglian emphasized that our Taiwan policy is consistent and clear. We will adhere to the one-China principle and the “1992 Consensus”, promote the peaceful development of cross-strait relations and the reunification of the motherland, and resolutely curb “Taiwan independence” separatist activities.
