Taiwan is calling on China to explore the possibility of finding a new consensus with Taiwan. That's the word from Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF) Chairman Tien Hung-mao on Monday.
Tien was speaking at a Lunar New Year party for Taiwanese students studying in China.
The SEF is a semi-official organization in charge of civilian exchanges with China in the absence of official ties.
Tien said that the government is dedicated to maintaining cross-strait peace and development. He said it hopes, therefore, that China will work with Taiwan to reach a consensus that is acceptable to both.
Relations between the two sides have chilled since President Tsai Ing-wen took office last May. Tsai's Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government has refused to acknowledge a consensus that the previous KMT-run administration reached with Beijing in 1992. Under that consensus, there is only one China, although each side may have its own interpretation of what that means.
