"TAIWAN FRIENDSHIP GROUP HIGHLY WELCOMES THE TAIWANESE PRESIDENT MA YING-JEOU AND THE CHINESE LEADER XI JINPING" STATEMENT BY PRESIDENT WERNER LANGEN MEP
The Taiwan Friendship Group in the European Parliament highly welcomes the meeting between the Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou with mainland Chinese leader Xi Jinping in Singapore on 7 November 2015.
In the light of the ongoing tensions in the South Chinese Sea this meeting shows determination of both sides to maintain peace and prosperity and to keep the political balance of power. This is of benefit to the people of both sides of the Strait and to the stability and security in East Asia.
This historical meeting is due to President’s Ma’s constant endeavour to foster security and to set a solid ground for a long-term peaceful status-quo in the Taiwan-Strait.
