Pointing to Premier Wu Den-yih’s (吳敦義) remarks on Friday that any cross-strait peace agreement would be signed in accordance with the Guidelines for National Unification (GNU) between Taiwan, Penghu, Kinmen and Matsu, and the territory “outside the free area” — China — Liang said Wu’s statement revealed what Ma truly has in mind.

“Although Ma said the signing of a cross-strait peace agreement has nothing to do with unification, in accordance with the GNU’s description, a peace agreement is what the GNU designates as the ‘long-term unification by negotiation’ phase,” Liang said.
