He said that the Taiwan authorities have undermined the political foundation for the peaceful development of cross strait relations, hindered the in-depth integration and development of compatriots on both sides of the Taiwan Strait and harmed the interests of the Taiwan compatriots, which is unpopular and hard to achieve. In the future, with the development of the mainland, there is still room for improvement and relaxation of cross-strait relations. At present, we must continue to work hard to promote cross-strait exchanges and cooperation. We must do our best to promote and protect the legitimate rights and interests of Taiwan compatriots, so that they can get real benefits.
Yang Yizhou stressed that this year marks the 15th anniversary of the promulgation of the anti secession law. At a critical juncture in cross strait relations, we should reaffirm the anti secession law and put it into practice more carefully, opposing and containing the legal principle of Taiwan independence.
In an interview with our reporter, three Taiwan deputies to the National Peoples Congress expressed similar views.
Liang Zhiqiang said that people on both sides of the Straits, especially Taiwan compatriots, have a need for exchanges and integration, and they are willing to gain benefits through cross strait economic, trade and cultural exchanges, which is unstoppable. The blood relationship between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait is continuous.
Chen Zixuan, chairman of the Xiamen Municipal Committee of the Taiwan Union, believes that the Taiwan authorities do not recognize the 1992 consensus of the one China principle and ignore the well-being of the Taiwanese. But the current cross-strait economic and trade exchanges and personnel exchanges have long been you have me and I have you. We need to deepen cross-strait exchanges, continue to implement preferential policies for Taiwan, implement equal treatment, and practically treat all sides equally.
