China Says In No Rush To Talk Politics With Taiwan

From Reuters:

China is in no rush to begin talks with historic rival Taiwan over sensitive military or political issues, Beijing’s top man in charge of policy toward the self-ruled island was quoted as saying on Wednesday.

Wang Yi, head of China’s Taiwan Affairs Office, told overseas Chinese in New York that promoting economic ties with Taiwan was still the priority, state news agency Xinhua said.

“For the time being complex issues of politics or the military cannot be talked about, but various kinds of political dialogue can be opened to increase understanding,” Xinhua cited Wang as saying.
