The Taiwanese Department of China Affairs (27) today said that the request for a South East Satellite TV reporter was rejected by Taiwan since talks between the two sides of the Taiwan Strait. In this regard, MAC said that my government respects and guarantees freedom of the press, but does not allow reporter Lu Media to distribute a false statement in a way that creates "false messages".
Ma Xiaoguang, a spokesman for the State Affairs Authority of Taiwan's State Council, said the request for Taiwanese news station in Taiwan was rejected by the DPP authorities. Long-standing land reporters have received a large number of objective and impartial reports in Taiwan to promote mutual understanding and brotherhood among compatriots on both sides of the Strait, in particular to better understand Taiwan on the mainland and play the role of bridge and connection. The rights and interests of journalists on the mainland should be protected. They should be respected for their talks in Taiwan.
Ma Xiaoguang pointed out that the DPP authorities have for some time used various means to limit and suppress mutual exchanges and cooperation, and have now stepped up their barriers to exchange of messages between different parties. This practice is unpopular and must be revealed and condemned.
In this regard, MAC has stated that the government respects and guarantees freedom of the press, but does not allow Lu Media to distribute a false statement in a way that creates "false messages". Taiwan is a democratic and free society. He has always respected the freedom of the press and is determined to maintain normal exchanges between the two sides of the Strait. The government has always maintained open access to journalists' interviews and news. The government has begun an interview with mainland reporters in Taiwan, and hopes that thanks to talks and news of mainland media editors in Taiwan, Taiwanese companies will be deeply comprehended and will provide objective and balanced information on reports that will enhance mutual understanding between the two sides.
MAC said reporter Lu Media had asked for an interview with Taiwan. The government is guided by "Licensing measures for people in mainland China to enter Taiwan" and "Security measures for interviewing journalists entering Taiwan on the mainland." The Authority convened a joint evaluation meeting to issue a resolution. In order to maintain overall inter-linkage exchange and to promote the proper and orderly development of cross-section reports, MAC will continue to assume responsibility for the competent authorities.
