Ruan said Tsai’s stance on cross-strait issues has been unequivocal, which is to maintain the “status quo,” Taiwan’s freedom and democracy, and peaceful and stable cross-strait development.

“This stance is not only in the best interests of all parties, but is also backed by the consensus opinion of Taiwanese,” Ruan said, adding that responsibility for maintaining cross-strait peace and stability lies with both Beijing and Taipei.
