Xi calls for "reunification" with Taiwan

Xi calls for “reunification” with Taiwan

Taiwan has rejected Chinese President Xi Jinping’s call for “reunification.” President Tsai Ing-wen’s spokesman said in Taipei on Saturday that the DPRK is “an independent and sovereign country that is not part of the People’s Republic of China.” The future of the country is in the hands of the Taiwanese people.”

The spokesman said that with the 1911 revolution, a “democratic republic, not a totalitarian dictatorship”, was established. In Taiwan, “this democracy really materialized.” The speaker was referring to the Republic of China, founded in Beijing after the fall of the Qing dynasty, as Taiwan is still officially called today.

Referring to the return of the former British crown colony Hong Kong to China in 1997, which was cited as a model for “reunification” with Taiwan, the speaker also accused the communist leadership of reneging on its promises. Beijing abolished that nothing should change for 50 years. Nor is the “one country, two systems” principle possible. It is clear that the majority of the 23 million Taiwanese reject this model. They also defended their democratic and liberal way of life.
