China's President Xi threatened on Wednesday to force reunification with Taiwan, if necessary also with violence."Which country is next?"
China's President Xi Jinping had said in a speech on Wednesday that he wanted to enforce the "reunification" of China, if necessary also with violence. The "inevitable" re-unification will be made in accordance with the formula of "One country, two systems". This is the Motto of the former British crown colony Hong Kong in 1997 had been returned to China.
Tsai said that Taiwan will accept this principle never. The new threats in China would be of global values of democracy in danger. "If the international community does not make Taiwan a democracy under Chinese threat, then we would like to ask, which country is next," said Tsai."Targeted campaign" against democracy
Tsai accused China, democracy on the island. Beijing lead a "targeted campaign" against Taiwan, she said. The show is also in China's intention to start negotiations with Taiwan's opposition parties instead of the government. It is Beijing, "our democratic process to reverse the process and split our society," said the President.
The dispute over the Status of Taiwan goes back to the civil war in China. After their defeat by Mao's Communists, the troops of the Chinese Kuomintang fled to Taiwan and established a Pro-Western Regime, the focused later more democratic. Since the founding of the people's Republic of China in 1949, Beijing considers the island Republic of Taiwan as its own territory, and threatened again and again with a re-conquest.
