President Xi Jinping on Wednesday said China must be and will be reunified, as he addressed a gathering in Beijing to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Chinese mainland’s Message to Compatriots in Taiwan, according to Xinhua.
“It is a historical conclusion drawn over the 70 years of the development of cross-Strait relations, and a must for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation in the new era,” said Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission.
President Xi raised a five-point proposal for peaceful reunification. He said the principles of “peaceful reunification” and “one country, two systems” are the best approach to realizing national reunification.
The communist President said China seeks the “peaceful unification” of Taiwan but will not rule out the threat of military action.
It is obvious that, in order to divert the irreconcilable problems and contradictions at home either politically, socially or economically, the vicious CCP is taking risks to wage a war against Taiwan.
For over 40 years of so-called reform and opening up, countless Taiwanese and overseas Chinese have contributed their efforts and hard-earned wealth to help build the mainland’s economy into the world’s second largest. But now at times of difficulties, the Communist regime has threatened over and over again to start a war to kill those Taiwanese who have given their sincere support. And the vicious CCP officials are going to do it on the pretext of nationalism and patriotism, with autocracy winning over democracy. This is a damned reasoning!
Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen tweeted ahead of Xi’s speech, “As president of the Republic of China, I must stress that we’ve never accepted the ‘1992 Consensus’, & the ‘four musts’ are crucial for positive cross-strait developments. I call on China to bravely take steps towards democracy, so they can truly understand the people of Taiwan”.
In her official statement, the Taiwan president remarks, “As president of the Republic of China, I must solemnly emphasize that we have never accepted the ‘1992 Consensus’. The fundamental reason is because the Beijing authorities’ definition of the ‘1992 Consensus’ is ‘One China’ and ‘one country, two systems’. So again, I am calling on China that it must face the reality of the existence of the Republic of China (Taiwan); it must respect the commitment of the 23 million people of Taiwan to freedom and democracy; it must handle cross-strait differences peacefully, on a basis of equality; and it must be governments or government-authorized agencies that engage in negotiations. These ‘four musts’ are the most basic and crucial foundations that will determine whether cross-strait relations develop in a positive direction”.
Miles Kwok tells his view about Taiwan.
“Let’s have a look at the past years with the situation in Taiwan. Have the Nationalist Party done anything good for the Taiwan people? No! The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has done a lot, especially Chen Shuibian and Li Denghui.”
“I personally oppose independence of Taiwan and Hong Kong; but I definitely oppose the reunification with communism. This is my firm stance. We shall never allow officials of Taiwan or Hong Kong to sacrifice the interests of the people of Taiwan or Hong Kong for sympathy from the mainland.”
“In my view, first, China must ensure the solemnity and independence of the legal system in Taiwan. Second, 1.4 billion Chinese must have heart-felt and authentic respect on Taiwan. Without the support of overseas Chinese, including Taiwanese and people of Hong Kong, China would never made their economic achievements. Third, we must ensure all overseas Chinese, including people of Taiwan and Hong Kong, have the respect and trust from the mainland. They must never be made use of for the benefits of the Communist regime or become their captives.”
“Taiwan or Hong Kong shall not declare their independence only on the condition that they have the respect and trust. And one fundamental prerequisite is that before any guarantee of safety from the mainland government, and guarantee of independence with its legal system and economic affairs, no reunification is practicable. Without this guarantee, I shall support a complete independence.”
“If you (CCP) truly regard Taiwanese as your brothers and sisters, why don’t they have the right for independence without your respect or trust? In my family, I have been supporting my brothers and sisters for all the years. If one day I acted in an attempt to kill my brothers, do you think they would continue to love me and this family? They must ask to live away independently. That is simple reasoning.”
“If Taiwan and Hong Kong have the mutual respect and trust from the mainland, same as Tibet and Xinjiang, that’s not only good news for their people, it is also CCP’s victory. If the CCP does not respect the culture and religion of these areas, they must have the right for independence. This is a basic human right and a universal value of the world.”
“In 2019, Taiwanese people will throw away the so-called ‘one country two systems” into the rubbish bin. They would stand up against CCP’s economic and media control over Taiwan and work together with Hong Kong people to stand firm in safeguarding their local independent legal system”.
The world has clear eyes to see who holds the sceptre of justice and righteousness, and who is doing evil.
I personally agree to reunification on the condition that mainland China shall establish a new government with freedom, democracy and equal rights for the people.
Everything is just beginning.
