PressTV 7 views
China has vowed to realize a peaceful reunification with Taiwan amid ongoing tensions with the self-ruled island over a host of issues, including its growing military nexus with the United States. President Xi Jinping said the biggest obstacle to achieving the reunification is Taiwan’s independence and separatism bids. He added that a peaceful reunification would meet the overall interests of the people of the Island. Taiwan officials, however, have repeatedly insisted that the future of the island rests in the hands of its people. Earlier, Taiwan officials also stressed that Beijing was flexing its muscles and causing regional tensions. The development comes amid tensions over Taipei’s growing military reliance on Washington. China claims its sovereignty over the island under the one-china policy. It also condemns US-Taiwan ties and Washington’s weapons sales to the island.
