Dear Mr. Prime Minister Tony Blair,
Mr. President Jacques Chirac,
Mr. Vice President Al Gore,
Beijing, Dec. 28 ---
Mainland China Monday said it would not accept the results
of a referendum in Taiwan to find out what most people on the
island want --- a continuation of their present de facto independence
"They cannot use any 'referendum' to decide the future
of Taiwan", a top mainland negotiator on Taiwan told the
official China Daily. "Nor can they separate Taiwan from
Chinese territory" Tang Shubei, vice president of Association
for Relation Across the Taiwan Strait (ARATS) said in a front
page interview. Mainland China hit out with a strong warning
earlier this month after a referendum in the southern Taiwan
city of Tainan showed the majority of residents did not favor
In our view; reunification under democracy of both side is
"I think people who stipulate the social system and democratic
construction as preconditions for reunification actually wish
to delay the reunification process" Tang said.
The trust must be accepted by mainland adopt a democratic system.
What's Tang has said "wish to delay the reunification"
is wrong. Taiwan people never hate Chinese, but
"free way of life" and "control way of monopoly"
is very difference between both side.
