||In 2016, the president of Democratic Progressive Party(DPP), Tsai Ing-Wen was in power. In her inauguration speech, President Tsai only respected the historical facts of the 1992 cross-strait talks and did not recognize the "1992 consensus." Without the political foundation between the two sides of the strait, the CPC’s Taiwan Affairs Office only responded with "this is an unfinished answer sheet" and unilaterally closed the communication channels between the cross-strait counterparts, causing cross-strait negotiations and exchanges to be interrupted again. Cross-strait relations have once again reached a deadlock.
Although President Tsai advocated "maintaining the status quo ", she also claimed that "the new government will handle cross-strait affairs in accordance with the Constitution of the Republic of China, Regulations on the Relation of People Between Taiwan and Mainland China and other relevant laws," and declared that Taiwan will be "a firm defender of peace", but Tsai believes that the "1992 Consensus" was the consensus between the KMT and the CPC
instead of a cross-strait consensus. Tsai led the cross-strait relation to a cold peace situation, with promoting "De-sinicization" and “cultural Taiwan independence” and “legalization of Taiwan independence” gradually.
After the 19th National Congress of the CPC, the Taiwan policy that Xi Jinping declared was promoting reunification. He emphasized that the "1992 Consensus", which reflects the one-China principle, clearly defining the key to the peaceful development of cross-strait relations. As long as recognizing the "1992 Consensus" and agreeing that the two sides of the strait belong to the one-China, the two sides can conduct dialogue and resolve the issues of concern to the compatriots on both sides of the strait. With regard to the Taiwan issue, adhering to the principle of "peaceful reunification, one country, two systems" and promoting the peaceful reunification of the motherland was the common aspiration of all Chinese people and the fundamental interests of the Chinese nation.
According to Xi, adhering to the "cross-strait family" concept, respecting Taiwan's existing social system and lifestyle, PRC is willing to share the development opportunities with Taiwanese, and expand cross-strait economic and cultural exchanges and cooperation. Also, PRC can provide the “equal treatment”to Taiwanese in working, living and studying area. And Xi will promote compatriots on both sides of the strait to jointly promote Chinese culture for promoting spiritual harmony. Xi also adheres to "anti-independence" and propose "six of any" to resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity and defeat any form of "Taiwan independence" separatist scheme.
Xi Jinping believed that the long-standing "political differences" between cross-strait is the key to affect the stability of cross-strait, but the cross-strait issue cannot be passed down from generation to generation. In commemoration of the 40th Anniversary of “Message to Compatriots in Taiwan”, Xi raised up the “Five Points”and explored the “one country, two system”at the very first time. The goal of reunification is to strive for the peaceful reunification with the utmost sincerity.
