Xi Jinping met with Taiwan's ex-president

Apr 10, 2024

Chinese leader Xi Jinping held a meeting with the former president of Taiwan, Ma Ying-jeou. They talked about the reunification of the People's Republic of China with the island.


This is reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to Reuters.

The meeting between Xi Jinping and Ma Yingju took place in Beijing's Great Hall of the People, where foreign leaders usually hold talks with top Chinese officials.

During the discussions, the leader of the People's Republic of China emphasized that the people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait are Chinese.

"External intervention cannot stop the historical trend of reunification of the country and the family," he added.

The Chinese leader did not specify what exactly he meant by "external interference", but it is probably US support for Taiwan.

"There is no grievance that cannot be resolved, no problem that cannot be discussed, and no force that can divide us," Xi Jinping said.

In turn, Ma Yingjiu warned against a war between China and Taiwan, as it would be intolerable for the Chinese people.

"The Chinese on both sides of the Straits have enough wisdom to resolve all disputes peacefully and not bring the matter to a conflict," he added.

It should be noted that on December 27 last year, Xi Jinping already announced “inevitable reunification” with Taiwan. According to him, this is the greatest national interest.
