Speaking in an interview with a local broadcasting station yesterday, Hsu said the DPP should seriously face the issue about future relations between Taiwan and mainland China because it concerns the island's long-term interests and security.
Hsu said DPP members, especially DPP leaders seeking presidential nomination, should not continue pushing “Taiwan independence.”
The former DPP chief has announced his plan to seek DPP nomination as the party's candidate for the upcoming presidential race, Incumbent DPP Chairwoman Tsai Ing-wen and former Premier Su Tseng-chang were two other candidates in the DPP primary.
Hsu said the best peaceful solution to the Taiwan-China confrontation and sovereignty dispute is for Taipei and Beijing to adopt a framework in line with the “one China: European Union model” which he has been pushing for many years.
