Chinese President Xi Jinping wants to reconnect Taiwan to China – if necessary by force. But the island state continues to fight for its autonomy.
Chinese President Xi Jinping has threatened the island state of Taiwan with a violent reunification.
China wants to achieve a peaceful union with Taiwan, but leaves “no room for separatist activities,” Xi said in a speech in Beijing. “We don’t guarantee to renounce the use of force.” Xi made it clear that the island Taiwan would affiliate with the Chinese mainland.
This was in the interests and for the benefit of the “Taiwan compatriots,” he said. An independent Taiwan contradicts the trend of history and will lead to a dead end.
