, November 11 -- On November 29, the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council held a regular press conference. A reporter asked: First, Hou Youyi recently announced to Taiwan's industrial and commercial circles that as long as he is elected, he will immediately resume dialogue and exchanges with the mainland and rebuild cross-strait mutual trust on the premise of reciprocity, dignity, and friendship. Ke Wenzhe also expressed his stance that the opening up of the two sides of the strait should be carried out step by step. Do you have any comment on this?

In this regard, Chen Binhua, spokesman for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, said that on the political basis of adhering to the "92 Consensus" and opposing "Taiwan independence," we are willing to work with relevant political parties, organizations, and people from all walks of life in Taiwan, including the Chinese Kuomintang, to consolidate and enhance mutual trust, strengthen exchanges and cooperation, and jointly bring cross-strait relations back to the right track of peaceful development, maintain peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, and benefit compatriots on both sides of the strait.

The reporter also asked: The Kaohsiung prosecutor said yesterday that the Taiwan Pan-Blue Association of Kaohsiung City accepted the reception arrangement from the mainland, asked the members to support a specific candidate or express their political stance, summoned 20 people on suspicion of violating the "anti-infiltration law," and restricted them from leaving the country to go to sea. Do you have any comment on this?

Chen Binhua pointed out that the DPP authorities' remarks are pure rumors. Every time there is an election, the DPP authorities go to great lengths to fabricate all kinds of lies and rumors that the mainland is "interfering in the election." It is believed that as the election and voting approach, the DPP authorities will create more rumors and lies. In this regard, the people of Taiwan have long been accustomed to it, and they will not be easily deceived.
