The peaceful development of cross-Straits relations is a choice made by the people on both sides of the Taiwan Straits in accordance with the historical trend.
I am delighted to meet Chairman Lien and other friends, old and new, right after the Spring Festival.
At present, cross-Straits relations are at a new starting point, and we are all facing important opportunities.
The Chinese mainland is strong in its resolution and clear in its policies and principles for peaceful development on both sides of the Taiwan Straits.
The central government affirms their efforts and will continue to support the HKSAR government in its administration in accordance with the law.
