On 24 May, Ma Ying-jeou said in an interview that the cross-straight made five years ago has proved to be feasible, and the policy is functioning smoothly; he also proposed additional three key points as guild lines for future works and reaffirmed the direction to continue to expand and deepen cross-straight exchanges. The three key points include the expansion of cross-strait exchanges, establishment of offices, and an overall review of “Cross-Strait Relations of People”.
Ma Ying-jeou said that in the past five years, cross-strait relation was improved through learning from each other, “there is disagreement which is not terrible, the most important thing is to resolve the differences, in other words, ‘putting aside disputes and create a win-win situation’. The five years of experience is really valuable.” He said.
Ma Ying-jeou said that the Kuomintang and the Communist Party had been competing for almost 80 years, avoiding the happening of further disputes between the two sides will be most beneficial to the people.
