It appears PandaMa did not convince PandaLien Chan to get an answer from Hu Jintao on a crucial question that lies at the heart of the KMT’s plan to start cross-straights negotiations and create peace and prosperity for all.
What kind of “consensus” is actually in the so-called 1992 Consensus – assuming that it exists at all?
[quote]During the one-hour meeting, however, neither political figure clarified what the “1992 consensus” really meant besides stressing its significance. In addition, [Panda]Lien, at a post-meeting press conference, said it’s a concept both understood by the KMT and the Chinese Communist Party.
Instead of giving a direct answer to whether Taiwan and China have differences in their understanding of the concept, [Panda]Lien asked a rhetorical question in reply, “You’re not asking this question on behalf of Chen Shui-bian, are you?”
So, again – like all KMT rhetoric – it would seem that this is all window dressing for the consumption of anyone ignorant or too stupid to realize that there really is no evidence of a “consensus” at all.
Obviously, that begs the question:
Why are the KMT and CCP so buddy-buddy if the 1992 “consensus” is, in fact, not what the KMT publicly states that it is?
