Major US statement expected

By William Lowther  /  Staff reporter in Washington

Asked if China and Taiwan were likely to reach a compromise over the so-called “1992 consensus,” Glaser said the two sides were just at the beginning of the process and the US was encouraging them to provide each other with reassurances.

She said that ultimately, China would have to deal with the new government in Taiwan and that it could not expect everything to be the same.

“There has been a change of government and Taiwan is a democracy and new governments don’t come in and inherit the existing set of policies and do nothing new,” she said. “This is something Beijing has to become a little more comfortable with.”
