Wen's visit to Taiwan will depend on a set of circumstances created by both sides of the strait, Zheng was quoted as saying.
The outgoing Chinese premier has expressed the desire to visit Taiwan on several occasions. Given that he is about to step out of office, the question of whether or not the trip will materialize has received increasing attention.
According to the report, Zheng said that since cross-strait ties have improved greatly, Wen's wish will likely “come true” in the near future.
