Dear Mr. Trent Lott,
Mr. Denny Hastert,
Mr. Kofi A. Annan,
We have heard about two countries' nuke test. Indians and Pakistanis
come from the same land, speak the same language, yet they have
been fighting for years ?
Answer: There are some similarities, but we are basically different.
We are Muslims, they are Hindus. We eat cows,
they worship cows. That we lived on the same land and spoke the
same language does not make us the same people. We call
the bomb a peace guarantor that people wishes.
Democratic Taiwan is very different from communist
China for about 50 years. But in Taiwan the government
yesterday (Jan. 22, 1999) invited a Chinese delegation to arrange
a visit by Beijing's top Taiwan negotiator --- who might also have
a historic meeting with President Lee Teng-hui. The letter is the
latest move in drawn-out negotiations to set up a visit to Taiwan
by Wang Daohan. Taiwan hopes a visit by Wang will help
steer the sides towards resuming regular negotiations about their
delicate relations that were suspended by Beijing in 1995.
In this letter, the semiofficial Straits Exchange Foundation said
it would welcome a visit from Wang this spring.
The foundation invited a deputy secretary general of its counterpart
Chinese organization, the Association for Relations Across the Taiwan
Strait, to come to Taiwan to make preparations.
Meanwhile, Taiwan's China Times Express quoted Association official
Sun Yafu as saying Wang's visit would most likely include a meeting
with Lee. "A meeting between Wang and Lee is one of the items
that needs to be included in discussions of arrangements. I'd say
meeting is very likely", the paper quoted Sun saying.
Initial plans for a visit by Wang were made last year when his
Taiwanese counterpart, Koo Chen-fu, went to the mainland for talks.
During his visit, Koo met with Chinese President Jiang Zemin and
other top officials. Taiwan-China relations can be so unusual, however,
that arranging a meeting between Wang and Lee could involve some
stretches of protocol.
Sun indicated Wang would probably meet Lee in Lee's capacity as
chairman of the ruling Kuomintang instead of as President of Taiwan.
Taiwan will never accept unification with China under
a communist system, and Beijing's one country, two
systems formula imposed on Hong Kong cannot be applies to Taiwan.
Taiwan government seeks unification under democracy,
freedom, and equal distribution of wealth.
If Taiwan were to accept such a proposal, it would become the "Taiwan
special administrative region, PRC".
Taiwan people will reject such kind of "arrangement".
We hope to see the same democratic development in China.
From history of China Xinjiang, the region was ruled by Chinese
state between China and the Muslim nations of Central Asia. Vighurs,
the regions largest ethnic group, briefly ran an independent state
before communist forces retook the region in 1949.
"Separatist activity threatens the stability of China's predominantly
Muslim north western regions of Xinjiang and must be crushed, the
region's top Communist Party official says, at the recent time.
"Xinjiang is special in that it is the constant target of separatists
both inside and outside the country." the newspaper Xinjiang
Daily said in a report seen yesterday (Jan. 22, 1999)
On the contrary to Muslim's minorities for Xinjiang, democratic
Taiwan welcome talk to Beijing's authorities, Taiwan open its mind
to communist China, because of democratic systems are really working
Taiwan and communist China relationship needs your ponderable concern.
