MAC chief visits Sun Yat-sen mausoleum

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Mainland Affairs Council Minister Wang Yu-chi (王郁琦) yesterday visited Dr. Sun Yat-sen's Mausoleum in Nanjing, paying his respects to the national father, and spoke about the founding of the Republic of China.

The minister arrived at the mausoleum in the morning and climbed up the 392-step stairway into the main hall. After flowers were presented to a seated statue of the national father, a eulogy was read, commemorating the Xinhai Revolution and the founding of the R.O.C. The eulogy went on to say that the national father's Three Principles of the People as well as the R.O.C. Constitution have been realized in Taiwan, urging both sides of the Taiwan Strait to follow the beliefs of Dr. Sun Yat-sen. Afterward, the minister and members of his delegation bowed three times beneath the statue before entering the vault.

The minister delivered a brief speech after his visit, saying that Dr. Sun Yat-sen founded the first democratic republic in Asia, the Republic of China, and that it has been 103 years since the nation was established.

The minister said that he was very moved to be able to visit the mausoleum as head of the MAC.

The minister stressed that since 2008, both sides of the Taiwan Strait have stabilized their ties under the “1992 consensus,” adding that the most important task at hand is for both sides to pragmatically face the realties of cross-strait affairs in order to maintain sustainable relations for the benefit of the people, so that the Taiwan Strait can be a channel of peace and cooperation.
