Taiwan opposes new Chinese policy

(MENAFN) Taiwan is opposing the “one country, two systems” solution suggested by Beijing, a spokeswoman for the self-governed island’s Foreign Ministry has stated, as reported by Reuters.

Addressing at a press conference on Thursday, Joanne Ou declared the Chinese administration was using U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's debated trip to Taipei as an “excuse to create a new normality to intimidate Taiwan's people.”

In a document issued on Wednesday, Beijing declined to exclude the use of force to conquer Taiwan, then vowed to look for peaceful union using “one country, two systems” as a guiding principle.

The idea, which earlier permitted some autonomy to Hong Kong and Macau, might bring “a positive impact on the resolution of the Taiwan issue,” in step with the white paper.

Remarking on the document, Taiwan's Foreign Ministry spokesperson stated the island’s experts refused Beijing’s suggestion, since only the Taiwanese people can decide their future.

“China’s whole statement absolutely goes against the cross-strait status quo and its reality,” Ou was cited by The Defense Post as saying.
