The president of the People's Republic of China, Xi Jinping, said today that the country "can achieve and get" the reunification with Taiwan.
"The complete reunification of our country can be achieved and will be achieved," Xi said at the end of a speech in which he commented on the 110th anniversary of the Xinhai Revolution (1911), which ended centuries of dynastic power in China and led to The creation of the Republic of China.
Although in previous occasions XI did not rule out the use of force to integrate in the People's Republic of Taiwan, considered by Beijing a rebellious province, today assured that they will follow the "basic principle of pacific" meeting. "
"The national reunification by peaceful means is the general interest of the Chinese nation, including our Taiwan compatriots," said the president, who was mentioning the framework of 'a country, two systems' - applied in Hong Kong and Macao, which Contemplate autonomy in various areas but belonging to China - as an option for the island.
The Chinese president called "compatriots on both sides of the Strait (of Taiwan)" to "get on the right side of history," warning that those who promote Taiwan's independence are "the biggest obstacle" for reunification and a "serious danger".
Taiwan is governed autonomously since the end of the civil war in 1949 after the victory of the Communists, who also sealed with the withdrawal of Kuomintang nationalists (KMT) to the island, where they continued with the regime of the Republic of China, which is officially still claiming the continental territory controlled by the People's Republic.
However, with the transition to democracy since the end of the 80s, the voices that claim to declare Taiwan's independence as a sovereign state have taken force.
In this regard, Xi affirmed that "those who forget their inheritance, betray the mother home and seek to divide the country will not have a good end, and will be despised by the people and condemned by history."
After insisting that the "question of Taiwan" is an internal issue in which other countries should not interfere, XI Apostled that "no one should underestimate the determination, the will and capacity of the Chinese people to defend its national sovereignty and territorial integrity" .
In the opinion of the communist leader, the "de facto 'separation of the island of the rest of the country arose" from the weakness and chaos of the nation ", and will be resolved when his plans of" national rejuvenation "come true.
"The reunification is the hope of all Chinese. If China can be reunified, all Chinese will live a happy life; if not, everyone will suffer," Xi said today, remembering one of the great protagonists of the 1911 revolution and precisely The founder of KMT, Sun Yat Sen.
Sun, first president of the Republic of China, remains a revered figure both by the Communists in China and the KMT in Taiwan, a shared admiration that is due to their struggle to end the imperial regime and modernize the country.Date Of Update: 09 October 2021, 17:03
