China Taiwan Net News on December 6 (Reporter Zhao Jing) This morning, the "2019 Taiwan Political Situation and Cross-Strait Relations Review and Prospect Seminar" hosted by the National Taiwan Studies Association was held in Beijing. In his speech, Wang Sheng, the executive vice president of the National Taiwan Studies Association, pointed out that the “election brawl” is the most prominent feature of Taiwan ’s political situation in 2019, but the leading role in the development of cross-strait relations has always been firmly in the hands of the mainland. Cross-strait relations have experienced twists and turns and even After going backwards, it will eventually return to the right track of peaceful development.
Wang Sheng pointed out that this year is the general election year in Taiwan. From the beginning of the year to the end of the year, the KMT and the DPP have launched an astonishing "big fight" between the DPP and the DPP for the right to qualify for the primary election and between the two parties for the ruling power. The election process was full of smearing, breaking news, fake news, fake polls, and operations of fear cards and sadness cards, but rarely saw rational policy discussions, and rarely saw a vision for Taiwan's future. It was completely naked. Ask whether you win or lose, but do whatever you can to win, party interests are paramount, and personal power is a priority. In the case of ruling disability and high public grievances, in order to fight for re-election, he changed the image of the so-called "middle reason" in the last election, put on an unyielding and fearless confrontation stance, and manipulated "terrorism, resistance" "China" card. After the Hong Kong turmoil, she even used Taiwan society's misunderstanding of "one country, two systems" to create the so-called "desperation." Tsai Yingwen ’s “God-Manipulation” approach really destroyed the KMT ’s advantage on cross-strait issues, reversed the election slump, and highlighted the characteristics of the DPP ’s “congressional elections”. At the same time, it also encouraged the populist atmosphere and caused Taiwan Social separatism tends to malignant development and further deterioration of cross-strait relations.
Wang Sheng said that General Secretary Xi Jinping delivered an important speech on January 2 this year, focusing on the five policy propositions to promote the peaceful development of cross-strait relations and the process of peaceful reunification in the new era, demonstrating that the motherland must be unified and inevitably unified. A firm will that leaves no room for various forms of "Taiwan independence" separatist activities, calling on the vast number of Taiwan compatriots to recognize that "Taiwan independence" only distinguishes between parties, religions, strata, military and civilians, and regions. It will bring deep scourges to Taiwan, resolutely oppose the split of "Taiwan independence" and jointly pursue a bright future of peaceful reunification. Guided by the spirit of this speech, the mainland has continued to adopt tough and flexible countermeasures. On the one hand, it has persisted in the "1992 Consensus", consolidated the international "One China" pattern, and demonstrated its strength and determination to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity. On the one hand, it encourages people on both sides of the Taiwan Straits to expand exchanges and cooperation, invites representatives from Taiwan to conduct "democratic consultations", and then introduces "26 measures", focusing on "equal treatment" and promoting cross-strait economic and social integration and development.
On the Taiwan side, the Tsai Ing-wen authorities insisted on the "Taiwan independence" separatist stance, not only positioning cross-strait relations as relations between the two countries, but also treating the mainland as an "enemy," and using administrative and legal means to continue to expand cross-strait separatist activities and deter cross-straits. People-to-people communication. What's more serious is that the Tsai Ing-wen authorities have revised the "Cross-Strait People's Relations Regulations" to set stringent conditions and extremely high thresholds for cross-strait negotiations to sign political agreements, and directly ruled out future cross-strait unification negotiations. In this way, no matter which party in Taiwan is in power in the future, it will be difficult to start cross-strait political negotiations. Even if the two sides sign a political agreement through negotiation, it will be difficult to enter into force, which seriously threatens the prospect of cross-strait peaceful reunification.
Wang Sheng pointed out: The main characteristics of cross-strait relations this year are the confrontation and rivalry between cross-strait splits and anti-separations, maintaining peaceful development and obstructing peaceful development, and promoting reunification and resistance to reunification. At present, there is no sign of the separatist steps of the Tsai Ing-wen authorities. In addition, the United States releases signals from time to time to support the confrontation between Taiwan and the mainland in the context of the strategic game between China and the United States. Therefore, this confrontation and contest will continue. It may also increase. However, the important speech delivered by General Secretary Xi Jinping at the 40th Anniversary of the Book of Complaints to Compatriots in Taiwan pointed out the direction of development of cross-strait relations. From the perspective of advancing the modernization of the national governance system and governance capabilities, the Fourth Plenary Session of the 19th Central Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) clearly stated that "it is necessary to firmly advance the peaceful reunification of the motherland, improve the institutional arrangements and policies to promote cross-strait exchanges and cooperation, deepen cross-strait integration and development, and protect the well-being of Taiwan compatriots. Measures ", the leading role in the development of cross-strait relations has always been firmly in the hands of the mainland. The situation across the Taiwan Straits is moving towards peace and stability, and cross-strait relations are developing. It is the trend of the times. A strong country, national rejuvenation, and cross-strait reunification are historical trends that cannot be stopped by anyone or any force. After going through twists and turns, even cross-strait relations will eventually return to the correct track of peaceful development. (Finish)
