PFP, NP Members Depart for Straits Forum|國民黨不去海峽論壇 親.新2黨未缺席

The Kuomintang is not sending a delegation to attend the Straits Forum. However, People First Party adviser Li Jian-nan and New Party Chairperson Wu Cherng-dean are attending, as well as a former deputy chairperson of the KMT's Mainland Affairs Department in his capacity as a Taiwan businessperson.

The Kuomintang previously announced it will not send a delegation to attend the Straits Forum in China. However, People First Party adviser Li Jian-nan and New Party Chairperson Wu Cherng-dean are attending, and they departed together from Taoyuan International Airport on Sept. 16, wearing ties in the colors of their respective parties.

I'm representing the People First Party. I'm going not to sue for peace, but to find a peaceful road for joint cross-strait studies.

(Does the party central committee know you're attending the Straits Forum?) I'm attending in my capacity as a Taiwan businessperson.

A former deputy chairperson of the KMT's Mainland Affairs Department kept a low profile, while KMT member and former Hualien City Mayor Wei Mu-tsun happily posed for cameras. The KMT canceled its plans to attend the forum after a CCTV anchor reported that Taiwan was attending in order to sue for peace and no apology was forthcoming. KMT Secretary-General Lee Chien-lung previously said that the other side had drafted an apology, but the Taiwan Affairs Office said there is no such thing.

This so-called apology statement does not exist, so this is not factual at all. The main reason why this incident ended with this result is because of the treacherous political situation and vile political ecology in Taiwan.

China said Taiwan's politics were the reason why the KMT is not participating in the 12th Straits Forum. It also said this forum is a non-governmental forum, and there will be exchanges and cooperation as long as both sides participate. Democratic Progressive Party lawmakers disagreed.

I think it's more important to rein in the horse at the edge of the precipice, and stopping all participation is the best policy.

We heard the voices of the people, and we of course have to view cross-strait exchanges as an important issue in moving forward. It's a difficult position for the Kuomintang.

The KMT decided not to participate in the forum as a party to quell opposition from inside and outside the party.

Former KMT Legislator Apollo Chen was not surprised by the turn of events. He said this is because the party's decision-making methods are changing, and China needs to perceive this.

國民黨確定不派代表團去海峽論壇,但親民黨以及新黨仍然如期出發,16號上午,打著黃色領帶的新黨主席吳成典,還有繫上橘色領帶的親民黨黨務顧問黎建南,一同出現在桃園機場。

親民黨黨務顧問 黎建南表示:「代表親民黨,不是去求和的,我是去尋求兩岸同胞,共同研究,怎麼樣找到一個和平的路。」

國民黨前大陸事務部副主任表示:「(黨中央,知道你會過去海峽論壇嗎?)我是以台商的身分過去的。」

國民黨前大陸事務部副主任面對鏡頭相當低調,反而是國民黨籍的前花蓮市長魏木村,開心的拍照,不同於以往的大陣仗,今年因為疫情,再加上中國央視主持人李紅的求和說風波,等不到道歉的國民黨,取消出團行程。秘書長李乾龍還曾表示,原本對方有擬了一份道歉聲明,但中國國台辦發言人馬曉光說,講稿完全不存在。

中國國台辦發言人 馬曉光表示:「根本不存在,所謂道歉聲明,完全不符合事實。這件事情,出現這樣的結果,關鍵的原因,是台灣內部詭譎的政治形勢,和惡劣的政治生態。」

國民黨不參與第12屆海峽論壇,中國把原因歸咎於台灣的政治因素,還強調,海峽論壇是民間性的論壇,只要兩岸共同參與,交流合作就會持續下去,但綠營立委卻不以為然。

民進黨立委 陳亭妃表示:「我相信可能懸崖勒馬,會比較重要,停止所有的參加,才是上上之策。」

國民黨立委 陳玉珍表示:「我們聽到民意,我們當然還是必須把兩岸交流,當作是重要的事情,往前推。所以國民黨的處境,真的是比較艱難。」

國民黨為了平息黨內外的反彈聲浪,不以政黨形勢參加海峽論壇,國民黨前立委陳學聖則對於事件發展不感到意外,因為他認為,國民黨的決策模式已開始悄悄轉變,對岸勢必要覺察。
