Beijing: We will not tolerate the slightest manifestation of separatism from Taipei

42

After winning the election, the current president of Taiwan, Cai Inven, was elected for a second term. Since China does not recognize Taiwan as a separate state, but considers it to be its rebellious province, temporarily out of control, the inaugural speech of the newly elected Taiwanese president was met with hostility by official Beijing.


In response to Cai Inwen’s speech, Ma Xiaoguan, spokesman for the Taiwan Affairs Department of the State Council of the People’s Republic of China, today says that mainland China is ready to create all conditions for peaceful reunification, but will not tolerate the slightest manifestation of separatism from Taipei:

We will not be tolerant of any separatist act and foreign interference ... National reunification is inevitable, as the Chinese nation is moving toward its great rejuvenation and cannot be stopped by anyone. Taiwanese separatism goes against the passage of time and is a dead end.

About this writes the Chinese publication Global Times.

And when US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo congratulated Ms. Tsai Inwen on re-election as President of the Republic of China (as Taiwan officially calls his state), the Chinese Foreign Ministry erupted in response to an angry tirade. They called Pompeo's congratulatory speech an intervention in the internal affairs of China.

It is worth noting that the United States for the first time in several decades openly and officially congratulated Taiwan's first person and even called her president, so Beijing’s sharp reaction is not surprising.

The congratulations of the US Secretary of State sharply reacted not only to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the PRC, but also to the Ministry of Defense of this country, having joined the protest of the Chinese Foreign Ministry.

Professor Li Fei of the Taiwan Research Institute of Xiamen University (PRC) believes that war with Taiwan is much more likely for China than a military clash with the United States. He believes that Washington will not bring the situation to a hot phase due to a lack of financial resources and the clear superiority of the PRC armed forces. An American response to Iran in January shows that the United States now cannot and does not want to afford a large-scale military operation abroad.

And while Taiwan is trying to maintain its armed forces in a state of alert, it will be difficult for them to withstand the power of the PLA. And Beijing considers the Cai Inwen mentioned in his inaugural speech “national defense reform” to be nothing more than an attempt to raise the morale of the people of Taiwan.

    Похоже Китай нашел полигон для "показа мускулов"... и Тайвань может превратится снова в Формозу... И чем сильнее будут противоречия между Китаем и США, тем такой сценарий более реален

      To begin with, they could congratulate the Crimeans on their return to their native harbor, and clarify the inevitability of the same for Taiwan.

        Если вам угодна параллель с Крымом, то независимость Тайваня от КНР это как раз волеизъявление народа. Так-то. Что до КНР то "одна страна две системы" это враньё как показывает пример Гонконга. Так что неудивительно что Тайбеэй не ведется на это. Тем более КНР плевать на волеизъявление граждан, и он стремится продвигать агрессивную политику (Казахстан, Киргизия, Африка, провинции самого Китая Синьцзян и Тибет) не взирая ни на что. Всё же Небесный Мандат...

          Тайвань не кто спрашивать не будет в Косово вот как то обошлись без референдумов. А параллели сейчас стало модно проводить строго перпендикулярно, а потом тупо доказывать, что "так и було". За примерами далеко ходить не надо - США и мелкобриты победили фашизм, а СССР вместе с Германией начали 2 Мировую, Россия не выполняет Минск 2 и т.д. и т.п. Так кто же сейчас наплевал на международное право и ведет агрессивную политику? Вот и выходит, кто сильней и смелей, тот параллелям и угол задает. yes

              A referendum on the independence of Kosovo was held from September 26 to 30, 1991 in the Autonomous Territory of Kosovo and Metohija. The declaration of independence took place on September 22, 1991. About 99% of those who voted at the turnout 87% voted for independence. The referendum was boycotted by the Serbs living in Kosovo. However, it was not until February 2008 that the Kosovo parliament passed an act of independence.

            Is there any need to explain?
            В целом компартии если и есть, то они абсолютно маргинальны (надеюсь "социалистические" партии Европы вы не считаете коммунистами), так что примеры современных западных стран демонстрируют что коммунистов не нужно подавлять силой для того чтобы их было крайне мало.
            Теперь к Тайваню. Учитывая генезис этого государство было бы странно если бы компартия была. Вспомним агрессивную риторику Пекина. Нельзя не понимать что быть коммунистом на Тайвани это равно быть сторонником врага. То же про Южную Корею можно сказать. Подавлялись ли там коммунисты раннее? Да, ну это и логично, Тайвань был диктатурой и подавлял политических врагов силой (так же как СССР, КНР, КНДР, Куба). После реформ 80-х там проводятся честные выборы, и Гоминьдан терял власть, чего не скажешь про КНР. Если что Си продлил свои полномочия до смерти после чистки в партии ("борьба с коррупцией").

        Не совсем так. Тайвань, это не "Крым", это "китайская украина", причём с точностью до десятого знака после запятой. Так же утверждают, что именно они истинные китайцы (славяне), что именно они наследники древнего Китая (Киевской Руси), язык у них самый правильный, и так далее по списку. laughing In one, I agree for sure that as soon as the states weaken (and this process is already running), everything will return to their places. Both Taiwan and Ukraine. After all, they are very greyhounds, exclusively from under the owner. The only difference is that Taiwan has pumped up the states economically, unlike Ukraine.

        What do you care? It was the United States that got into a showdown between China and Taiwan (Mao Zedong - Chiang Kai-shek, Communists with Kuomintang). Taiwan is China’s internal affair. You will be very worried if in the showdown of the United States - Russia, Ukraine will drown? However, everything goes to that.

        These are the internal affairs of China, and to give an analysis you need to know thoroughly the history of this region.
        for example, we have Crimea and Russia, who do not know history for them, it will be the seizure of foreign territories, annexation, or whatever you want, you can call it, and who owns the information is the restoration of historical justice.

    Do you need such a union at the moment? The mental differences between the Chinese of China and the Chinese of Taiwan have become very strong over 70 years of parallel existence. For China, Hong Kong is a headache. There will be an order of magnitude more problems with Taiwan. And in Taiwan they are waiting for the collapse of the CCP.

      I respect the experience of the PRC and the CPC in carrying out economic and administrative reforms. On the other hand, reading the speeches of the Chinese leaders, studying the materials of Chinese sites (unfortunately, only in Russian versions), you come to the conclusion about some dogmatism in some issues. For example, they very much exaggerate there understand the leading role of the party. We didn’t have this under Stalin, nor under Khrushchev and Brezhnev. Although, I repeat, this does not at all preclude the fact that China has achieved gigantic success over the past 40 years.
