Xiao Xucen mentioned that after the "Ma-Xi Conference" in 2015, Xi Jinping told Ma Ying-jeou that "there will be a period later", so he always felt that nothing is impossible, but at this stage, the important thing about Ma Ying-jeou's trip is ancestor worship and communication. Did not go to Beijing.
Xiao Xucen said that Ma Ying-jeou took the first step in this trip, and I hope there will be follow-ups. I look forward to more exchanges between people from all walks of life in Taiwan and young people on both sides of the strait. Whether it is China or Taiwan, most people don’t know much about politics, but they all know that as long as there is With goodwill, there will be no war between the two sides of the strait.
Xiao Xucen believes that Ma Ying-jeou's trip told Taiwan that as long as the Constitution of the Republic of China is abided by, the two sides of the Taiwan Strait can coexist peacefully. He believes that Taiwan's two major political parties, the Democratic Progressive Party and the Kuomintang, must think about how to face the future of the two sides of the Taiwan Strait.
Xiao Xucen pointed out that before announcing Ma Ying-jeou's visit to China, he had reported to the KMT Chairman Zhu Lilun. As for the content of the exchange, there was no need to discuss it with the Party Central Committee, because the 1992 Consensus is the KMT's political platform, and there is no dispute. .
As for media reports, the KMT will call for presidential candidates in May at the earliest. The most vocal mayor of New Taipei City, Hou Youyi, is actively preparing cross-strait and foreign political opinions, and respects the spirit of the 1992 Consensus. Xiao Xucen said that if the report is true, it basically conforms to the KMT’s political platform.
