Ko Shu-ling reports, but we see nothing new here:
Taiwan has a great opportunity to improve cross-strait relations, and the opportunity will quickly pass if both sides do not take advantage of it, Straits Exchange Foundation Chairman Chiang Pin-kung (江丙坤) said yesterday.
The government would like to see a win-win situation created on the economic front and sustainable peace across the Taiwan Strait, he said. To that end, a comprehensive economic cooperation agreement would prevent Taiwan from being marginalized economically, and the normalization of cross-strait trade would help create such a positive situation, he said.
In pursuing cross-strait peace, he said both sides must sign a peace agreement and establish a military mutual trust mechanism to establish a framework that can be developed upon.
Chiang made the remarks while addressing the Presidential Office’s monthly meeting for top government officials and civil servants.
