The KMT chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chiu departed for China on Oct 30 to attend a cross-strait forum. Hung said this trip is aimed at cross-strait peace development. The KMT also said that Hung will not deviate from her set agenda. In response to concerns that she will not be talking about the "One China, different interpretations" and KMT's cross-strait policy, Hung said that her purpose is to promote cross-strait peace and stability.
Right before KMT chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chiu's trip to China, conflict erupted between the KMT supporters and Taiwan Solidarity Union youth members at Taoyuan International Airport. Hung was surrounded by security personnel at the airport. Many have questioned Hung's cross-strait peace policy and her silence on the "One China, respective interpretations" policy.
==HUNG HSIU-CHIU, KMT Chair==
In the grand scheme of history, it is petty to be stuck in the arguments of a single word or phrase. The KMT is no doubt against Taiwan independence. As for words and phrases, they should not be overemphasized.
Hung said that cross-strait talks have come to a halt after the DPP administration took office. However, non-official exchanges should not be disrupted. The KMT should bear the responsibility for the people of Taiwan. Hung will tactfully mention the Republic of China during her visit to Sun Yat-sen's Mausoleum and present the KMT's peace policy platform to Xi Jinping during their meeting, but will like not make any unexpected comments.
==HUNG HSIU-CHIU, KMT chair==
We need to continue to promote cross-strait exchanges between the people of both sides. Although communication between the governments have cooled down, people should not stop engaging in dialogues.
==TSAI CHENG-YUAN, KMT Central Policy Committee Director==
She will talk about KMT's policies but will not mention "one China, same interpretations". She will not say anything unexpected.
Some people asked the Hung-Xi meeting to be public. In response, Tsai Cheng-yuan said that Hung will play by the book and act in the same way as former KMT chairs. After her visit to Sun Yat-sen's Mausoleum in Nanjing, Hung will leave for Beijing to attend the Hung-Xi meeting on Nov 1st and the Cross-Strait Peace Development Forum on the 2nd. She will return to Taiwan on the 3rd.
