KMT: Boao Forum proves CCP accepts One China, Two Interpretations

If you ask me, the KMT is spinning this faster than Pluto completes one rotation.

Basically, the Chinese Ministry of Commerce put out a press release that included the language "One China Principal (一中原則)" as if Vice President-elect Vincent Siew (蕭萬長) and the Chinese Ministry of Commerce had agreed on such language.

Siew quickly denied having agreed to that particular wording; the Xinhua news agency quickly altered the press release to remove the phrase

And now KMT politicians such as legislator Sun Ta-chien (孫大千) (Taoyuan County) and Wu Yu-sheng (吳育昇) (Taipei County) are saying this proves the CCP accepts the "One China, Two Interpretations" 一中各表 stance.

Background: during an interview with Chinese media last year, Wu Yu-sheng said Ma Ying-jeou would be running for the office of "Taiwan leader" instead of President, and he caught a lot of flak for that.

Sun Ta-chien was one of the founding members of the PFP and the first to run back to the KMT after the new electoral system pressures came into play.

But the truth here is, China didn't say anything about "One China, Two Interpretations" at or since the forum.
