Original title: the DPP called the residence permit a "United Front" Taiwan Affairs Office: discredit is their nature.
September 12, Sept. 12 - At 10:00 a.m., the National Taiwan Office held a regular press conference. Spokesman Anfeng Shan responded to the issue of Taiwan residents'residence permits issued by the mainland a few days ago.
Reporter Guo Guang of CCTV asked a spokesman. Regarding the issue of residence permits for Taiwanese residents in the mainland, the DPP authorities claimed that the unilateral "united front" act of the mainland affected the "security" of Taiwan and were working out so-called "counter-measures". What is the comment of the spokesman?
Anfeng Shan pointed out that issuing residence permits for Taiwan residents is a good thing to facilitate Taiwan compatriots to study, work and live in the mainland. This policy is aimed at carrying out General Secretary Xi Jinping's important exposition on Taiwan's work, implementing the concept of "one family on both sides of the Strait" in line with the purpose of "governing for the people", resolutely seeking the well-being of compatriots on both sides of the Strait, doing good deeds for Taiwan compatriots, and taking the lead in sharing opportunities for the development of the mainland with Taiwan compatriots. An important step towards "equal treatment" is to respond positively to the appeals of the broad masses of Taiwan compatriots, to ease their worries and difficulties, and to effectively solve the practical difficulties and problems that have plagued Taiwan compatriots for many years. There are three points that need to be explained.
First, the residence permit of Taiwan residents is different from that of mainland residents. Residence permit is an identity card used by Taiwan compatriots in mainland China. It aims to solve the problem of convenience for Taiwan compatriots in studying, working, living, clothing, food, housing and transportation in mainland China. It does not involve the adjustment of political rights and obligations. Second, the application for residence permits of Taiwanese residents does not require the mainland's household registration, nor does it require the renunciation of Taiwan's household registration. Thirdly, the application for residence permits of Taiwanese residents is entirely voluntary, and it is entirely up to the Taiwanese compatriots themselves to decide whether or not to apply without any compulsory requirements.
Anfeng Shan said that, in a word, the policy's significance lies in facilitating the people, benefiting the people, enabling the licensed Taiwanese to enjoy three rights, six basic public services and nine conveniences provided by the state and their place of residence, and enjoying equal treatment. Whatever good things the mainland does for Taiwan compatriots, the DPP authorities should deliberately distort and discredit, restrict and obstruct, which is the nature of the DPP.
