Meanwhile, referring to Chinese President Xi Jinping’s (習近平) New Year statement, in which he said he has “six wishes” regarding Beijing’s goal for Taiwan affairs and that China’s policy on Taiwan remains guided by the principle of “peaceful unification and one country, two systems,” the DPP stated its new year wishes in response.

“We hope that people across the Taiwan Strait will be able to enjoy better lives and freedom, and that the governments on both sides show more sympathy toward their people. We also hope the people of Taiwan will be free from [China’s] military threats and oppression of their effort to participate in international affairs. And we hope China will respect Taiwanese aspirations,” DPP Policy Research Committee executive director Joseph Wu (吳釗燮) said.
