Beijing expressed concern Wednesday over a long-stalled trade service pact signed with Taiwan, the South China Morning Post reported Thursday. Ma Xiaoguang, from the State Council’s Taiwan Affairs Office, was quoted as saying that “people on the two sides of the Taiwan Strait are reluctant to see the progress of cross-strait economic cooperation disturbed”. Ma said the mainland views the pact as “well-drafted and mutually beneficial”. Both sides were continuing to plan a trip to Taiwan by the office’s director, Zhang Zhijun, the report said.
