Taiwan’s president rejects potential opp. deal with China

“Taiwan society will not accept any treaty that harms Taiwan’s national sovereignty and democracy,” Taiwan’s president Tsai Ing-wen said on Wednesday following the KMT’s announcement that it could sign a peace deal with China next year if it were to win in the upcoming presidential election. The chairman of the Beijing-friendly KMT, Wu Den-yih, said last week that his party could sign a peace deal with China if it won the 2020 elections. Tsai’s so-called Democratic Progressive Party suffered heavy losses against the KMT in mayoral and local elections held in November last year. Tsai also said that if China wanted to use force against Taiwan to bring it under its control, then there would never be real peace between the two. China sees Taiwan as inseparable Chinese territory and has never renounced the use of force to bring under its control what it sees as a wayward province. Beijing has ruled out “independence” for Taiwan. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying warned in October last year that Taiwan’s “independence” bid posed a grave threat to peace and stability across the region.
