The 215th White Forum

How does the trend of Taiwanese people's hearts affect the status quo of cross-strait games?

On March 16, 2018, the news from the White House in the United States was taken by the Senate and the House of Representatives and the second domestic law related to Taiwan, signed by President Trump, was officially published. Effective.

On March 16, 2018, the news from the White House in the United States was taken by the Senate and the House of Representatives and the second domestic law related to Taiwan that was signed by President Trump.Taiwan Travel LawOfficially in force. 

The bill allows officials at all levels of the US to visit Taiwan, allowing high-ranking officials in Taiwan to come to the United States under "respected conditions," to meet with senior officials including the US Department of Defense and the State Council, to encourage Taiwan's economic and cultural representatives in the United States, and to establish any in the United States. The organization conducts business in the United States.

Obviously, this is the direct expression of the US Congress's formal support for high-level exchanges between the US and Taiwan. The Chinese Embassy issued a statement saying: "China is strongly dissatisfied with this and resolutely opposes it," urging the US to "stop the official exchanges between the US and Taiwan and enhance the substantive relationship." On the 17th, Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Wu Qian said that the bill seriously violated the one-China principle and the three Sino-US joint communiques, interfering in China's internal affairs and undermining the development atmosphere of the relations between the two countries and the two armies. The Chinese military firmly opposed this. .

The signing of the bill is bound to bring new challenges to cross-strait relations and Sino-US relations.

 

In fact, since the 2016 Taiwan general election, the Democratic Progressive Party candidate Tsai Ing-wen has won the victory, and after the return of the Democratic Progressive Party in the past eight years, he has continuously strengthened his separation of political, economic, cultural and other discourses and discourses. To publicize the localization consciousness of Taiwan society and the trend of "de-Chinaization", then how do people in Taiwan think about the DPP in such an environment? In the face of the "United States Travel Law" that was recently signed into force, has Taiwan’s internal publicity changed again?

Since 16 years, China’s policies and strategies toward Taiwan have changed, so where is it changed, why is it changed, and why is it unchanged? Between this change and the change, is the relationship between the two sides of the strait development or blocked? Will the political and economic situation within Taiwan be affected?

 

For a long time, although the two sides of the strait have realistic needs in terms of non-governmental exchanges and are not easy to sever, but based on the interactive experience of past history, the falsification of real interests, and the serious lack of political mutual trust, the settlement of the Taiwan issue has always been in the foreseeable future. Between Hetong and Wutong, all parties have different opinions.

In the past few months, China’s series of military exercises targeting Taiwan, flying around the island and cruising have been called the “new normal” by the media.

On January 22, Tsai Ing-wen accepted an on-site TV interview in the middle of the night and was asked if "the mainland will fight Taiwan." She said that "no one will rule out this possibility." Many international friends worry that China will solve the Taiwan issue by force. .

On the 25th, the Chinese side responded: "We are willing to strive for the prospect of peaceful reunification with the utmost sincerity, but we will never allow Taiwan to split from the motherland."

So is it unified? Or martial arts?

Looking to the future, where will cross-strait relations go? How will the people's hearts within Taiwan change? What is the relationship between the two?

These questions in the text, historian Tang teacher will discuss with you in this lecture.
