Respect Popular Opinion on Reunification, Taiwan Urges Xi

BEIJING/TAIPEI – China’s President Xi Jinping said on Friday that Taiwan’s reunification with China was unstoppable, while the Taiwanese government responded by urging him to respect the opinion of people on the island.

On Friday, Xi met a delegation in Beijing, led by Lien Chan, former vice-president of Taiwan and leader of the opposition Kuomintang Party, which supports eventual unification with the mainland.

“We have the confidence and ability to keep a firm hold on the correct direction, work for the peaceful development of cross-Strait relations, and advance the process toward the peaceful reunification of China,” Xi said, according to official news agency Xinhua.

After the meeting, the government of Taiwan urged China to “accept the reality” and respect Taiwanese public opinion.

Qiu Chui-zheng, spokesperson of Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Committee, said the government would sustain the peaceful and stable condition of relations with China, while asserting that it would continue to protect Taiwan’s sovereignty.

Qiu added that China needed to reduce “negative actions” against Taiwan which harm bilateral relations and resolve differences through dialogue.
