DPP welcomes Tainan Mayor Lai's comments in Shanghai

In light of DPP Tainan Mayor Lai Ching-te (William Lai) comments made in Shanghai, DPP Spokesperson Mr. Huang Ti-Ying issued a statement in which the party agreed that Lai simply stated public sentiment and that such viewpoints are mainstream in democratic Taiwan.
While the DPP advocates substantive engagement with the Chinese to enhance dialogue and communication, such commitments can only benefit with mutual respect and understanding.

"We hope the Chinese can dissolve our differences that arose from past histories. At the same time, the DPP will continue to engage and enthusiastically seek continued bilateral exchanges," Mr. Huang said.
