China's Xi says "reunification" with Taiwan must and will be realized
CA, 09 Oct 2021
Chinese President Xi Jinping vowed Saturday that a "reunification" with Taiwan must and will be realized, adding doing so by "peaceful means" would best serve the interests of the Chinese nation "as a whole."
The words come as concerns have been raised by various countries after a week of tensions between Beijing and the democratically-ruled island. Taiwan has come under increased military and political pressure from Beijing to accept its sovereignty, but Taipei has pledged to defend their freedom.
Xi made the comments Saturday on the 110th anniversary of the revolution that overthrew the last imperial dynasty in 1911.
