Forum to focus on cross-Strait peace

The first cross-Strait peace forum will be held in Shanghai next month, Yang Yi, spokesman of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council said yesterday.

Yang said the forum will feature talks on peace across the Taiwan Strait and mutual development, and will be attended by 120 delegates from civil groups and academic institutions.

They will discuss political relations, security mutual trust and a framework for peace.

Yang said the forum will serve as an important platform for exchanges and dialogues between mainland and Taiwan people.

“The mainland will support and encourage people-to-people political dialogues between the two sides, which can discuss solutions for issues concerning politics, defense and foreign relations, to create conditions and gather experience for the opening of cross-Strait political negotiations,” said Yang.

The spokesman added that as for Taiwan’s participation in international organizations, the two sides can make reasonable arrangements through consultations on condition of not making “two Chinas,” or “one China, one Taiwan” situations.

 The forum will be held from October 11 to 12.
