Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou signals no change on China policy as 2nd term begins

By Associated Press, Published: May 19

TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taiwan’s president began his second term Sunday and signaled he will maintain a China policy that has reduced tensions between the sides, offering Beijing little early hope of realizing its long-term goal of unification.

Speaking at a low-key inaugural ceremony in Taipei’s ornate presidential office building, Ma Ying-jeou hewed to the same formula for relations across the 160-kilometer-wide (100-mile-wide) Taiwan Strait he championed during his first term.

“Our cross-strait policy must maintain the status quo of ‘no unification, no independence and no use of force,’” Ma said.

TAIWAN IS A PROVINCE OF CHINA:

Reunification of the country embodies the fundamental interest of the Chinese nation.
After national reunification the two sides of the Taiwan Straits can pool their resources and make common cause in economic development and work towards China's resurgence. Numerous problems that have been besetting Taiwan would be judiciously resolved within the framework of one China. Taiwan compatriots will share the pride and glory of a great nation with their kith and kin from the other parts of the motherland.
Taiwan question has long been a destabilizing factor in the Asia-Pacific region. Reunification of China will not only bolster the stability and development of the country itself, but also contribute to the further enhancement of the friendly relations and cooperation between China and other countries as well as to peace and development in the Asia-Pacific region and the world as a whole. The Chinese Government is confident that it can count on the understanding and support of governments and people of all countries in the pursuit of its just cause of safeguarding its state sovereignty and territorial integrity.

you can be proud to be taiwanese, but always remeber that china owns taiwan.

unlike you, we are not renegades or prostitutes selling to imperialist forces.

TAIWAN ceased to exist on October 1, 1949, when Mao Zedong proclaimed the founding of the PRC to end a four-year civil war between the CCP and the KMT.

Little Poo, you have to agree with me that commie china is a nation of prostitutes right?, ok, we can all agree that china's most important export is sex, and we can all agree that the power of the chinese poon tang is legendary, like even in darkest Africa, the men are willing to give away their weeks wages for a taste of the orient, this is amazing.
Now in china, there is a very serious shortage of woman, many men,, about 15% are doomed to go through life just knowing the pleasure of their hand, this is very sad, so why are these women plying their trade in foreign countries, there must be a reason?,
Rayhole was hoping china could conquer Vietnam, Philippines, and malaysia to provide woman for the hapless womenless men in china, sigh,,,not gonna happen, these countries are to strong, and any way,, for some strange reason,, their women dont like commies.
and back to you saying that Taiwan does not exist, well why do we have to send back thousands of commie prostitutes, that are smuggled here on illegal boats each year? huh?.
Yes little Poo,, we despise you commie,s and your value's, we are a proud country, and commie china is a cess pit

Mainland China's position on Taiwan is crystal clear: there is only one China and that Taiwan is part of China; the People's Republic of China will achieve reunification of the island and mainland. Taiwan cannot claim independence as a distinct State.

TAIWAN WILL ALWAYS BE A PROVINCE OF CHINA.

Little Poo, we Taiwanese have given you commie's enough warning to straighten up you act,,, now it is time to act,, from now on,, many chinese will not be allowed to visit Taiwan,, you can go to Japan instead

Taiwan will begin checking the human rights records of Chinese nationals seeking to visit the country, an official in charge of China policy said Thursday.

The National Immigration Agency and other government agencies have formulated a procedure for screening applicants to prevent entry to Taiwan by Chinese citizens with a record of human rights abuses, said Liu Te-shun, deputy chairman of the Mainland Affairs Council.

The new procedure was developed in response to a request by the legislative Internal Administration Committee a month ago to take into consideration the “human rights records" of Chinese local government officials seeking to visit Taiwan.

The committee asked the Taiwanese government agencies to research the human rights records of such applicants through the foreign and justice ministries, via the internet and through consultations with groups that report human rights abuses.

The decision was announced against the backdrop of a cultural visit to Taiwan this week by Hunan governor Xu Shousheng, whose human rights record has been questioned in the local media. Before Xu left for Taiwan, it was reported that pro-democracy activist Li Wangyang died at a Hunan hospital under suspicious circumstances.

Li, 62, had been imprisoned for "instigating counterrevolutionary propaganda" after co-founding the Labor Autonomous Union to support student protesters in China in 1989. When Li was released in 2000, he sued for compensation, earning himself another lengthy sentence for the same crime.
