 New Taiwanese president treads cautiously on policy to China
As Chen Shui-bian was inaugurated on May 20 as the new president of the Republic of China (ROC) on Taiwan, attention focused on the potential for the incoming administration to become embroiled in an open conflict with China.

The main contenders for the presidency on March 18 proved to be Soong, and Chen of the DPP, supported not only by his party, but by the sections of big business associated with Lee and even layers of the KMT itself.

 TECRO: Taiwan's chief representative office in the United States, Washington DC   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
China's purpose is unquestionably obvious, that is, they aim to change the status quo in the Taiwan Strait through undemocratic and unpeaceful means rather than working with us to maintain stability in the region.
In order to prevent China from using force against Taiwan and therefore, unilaterally changing the status quo, I have proposed a referendum for peace to be held on March 20.
We seek to, within the shortest timeframe, invite China to appoint a representative to meet with our appointed envoy--mindful of the democratic choice that has been made by the people of Taiwan--to commence negotiation on the establishment of a "peace and stability" framework for cross-strait interactions.

CHEN: The PRC's one China principle insists that there is only one China and the PRC is the sole legitimate government of China, and Taiwan is part of the People's Republic of China.
The PRC's overreaction to these kinds of decisions is actually 100 percent interference in the internal affairs of the US and I don't think this is the right way to do (things).

 E-Notes: A Conversation with Chen Shui-bian, The President of the Republic of China on Taiwan - FPRI
Chairman of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), his election in May 2000 was a milestone in Taiwanese politics; he became the first president of the Republic of China not from the former ruling party, the Kuomintang.
China’s primary goal is to “marginalize” and “downgrade” Taiwan to the status of a local government by isolating us politically while trying to involve us economically.
China’s disregard for and revolt against the universal values of human civilization make it one of the greatest threats to democracy, freedom, human rights, and world peace.

 Chen Shui-bian : Chen Shuibian
Chen Shui-bian (born 1950) (陳水扁; pinyin: Chén Shuǐbiǎn), colloquially and affectionately referred to as Ah Bian (阿扁 a1 bian3), was elected as the President of the Republic of China on Taiwan in March 2000 and took office in May 2000 with his Vice-President Lu Hsiu-lian[?].
Although relations between Taiwan and Mainland China remain cool, there is little of the personal invective which was directed at his precessor Lee Teng-hui.
In an election eerily similar to Taipei 1994, Chen won the presidency in 2000 as a result of a split of factions within the Kuomintang, when independent James Soong (later, leader of the People First Party) ran for presidency against the party nominee Lien Chan.

 ROC presidential election, 2000 - Psychology Central   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The Election for the 10th-term President and Vice-President of the Republic of China (第十任中華民國總統、副總統選舉), the second ever direct elections for President and Vice President of the Republic of China on Taiwan and the 10th under the 1947 Constitution, were held on March 18, 2000.
It is a very common belief that President Lee Teng-hui was secretly supporting Chen Shui-bian, and purposely supported the less popular Lien in order to split the Kuomintang, and this belief was given a great deal of credibility after the 2000 election with Lee defected to the pan-Green coalition.
The last minute endorsement of Chen Shui-bian by President of the Academia Sinica and Nobel laureate Yuan T. Lee is also thought to have played a role in his election.

At the subsequent meeting of the Presidents and delegations, both the bilateral relations between Estonia and China, and relations with other states and their alliances were under discussion.
The President of China acknowledged Estonia's successes over the last decade and expressed the hope that, due to its successful development, Estonia shortly would become a member of the European Union.
The Presidents indicated unanimously that in addition to advancement of relations between our two countries and progress in relations with alliances of states, co-operation with third countries based on good-neighbourliness, first of all with Russia - the common neighbour of both China and Estonia - was no less important.

In this regard President Lee's remarks are a welcome provocation; even if his remarks' substance does not represent a significant departure from his government's policy since 1991, there is a difference in the directness and tone of his comments.
Perhaps Lee's remarks are designed to position his party favorably in negotiations with the mainland when People's Republic of China representative Wang Daohan arrives in Taipei in October, and in the upcoming presidential election in Taiwan next March.
He is the first native Taiwanese and first directly elected president of the Republic of China.

 Asia Times Online - News from greater China; Hong Kong and Taiwan
Beginning with former president Jiang Zemin's Eight Points proposal in December 1995, and amplified in subsequent statements, China's leadership has stated or implied five events that they say would cause them to use force against Taiwan.
The Republic of China government, established by Sun Yat-sen on the mainland in 1912, was a founding member of the United Nations and a formal security treaty ally of the United States between 1954 and 1979.
Of China's five war "triggers", the three that President Hu Jintao's government is currently emphasizing are a formal independence declaration, emergence of technology to defeat a PRC attack and lack of progress in negotiations.

We welcomed the signing by China of two key international human rights treaties in 1997 and 1998 and the revisions made in recent years to legislation governing the rights of criminal suspects.
Another challenge for China in the next 50 years will be its handling of ethnic minorities, many of whom aspire to greater autonomy or independence and want respect for their social, economic, cultural and religious rights.
China has undergone profound social and economic changes in the past 20 years, but civil and political freedoms remain severely curbed.

 Taiwan: President Chen Inaugural Address   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Therefore, let us relinquish our differentiation between native and foreign, and between minority and majority, for the most complimentary and accurate depiction of present-day Taiwan is of a people "ethnically diverse, but one as a nation." A shared sense of belonging has become the common denominator among all the 23 million people of Taiwan.
To avoid repeating the same mistakes by past administrations--six rounds of constitutional amendments in ten years time--the proposed constitutional reform project must not be monopolized by one person or by a single political party, nor should it be undertaken merely for the short-term.
By the time I complete my presidency in 2008, I hope to hand to the people of Taiwan and to our country a new version of our Constitution--one that is timely, relevant and viable--this is my historic responsibility and my commitment to the people.

Former Taiwan President Lee Teng-hui says that when current President Chen Shui-bian asserts that there is “one country on each side of the Taiwan Strait,” he is merely stating a fact.
The spirited 79-year-old Lee immediately sums up the People’s Republic of China-Taiwan relationship: PRC leaders in Beijing assert, as they have since 1949, that Taiwan is a part of China, and must be reunited with the mainland.
