China issues white paper on Taiwan question and China's reunification in new era
The Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council and the State Council Information Office of the People's Republic of China issued a white paper titled "The Taiwan Question and China's Reunification in the New Era" on Wednesday.
The white paper reiterates the fact that Taiwan is part of China and demonstrates the resolution of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Chinese people to realize national reunification.
The CPC has always been dedicated to working for the wellbeing of the Chinese people and the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, the white paper says.
It is committed to the historic mission of resolving the Taiwan question and realizing China's complete reunification. Under its resolute leadership, people on both sides of the Taiwan Straits have worked together to de-escalate tension across the Straits, it adds.
Against a backdrop of profound and complex changes in the domestic and international situation, the cause of complete national reunification is facing new challenges, says the white paper, "The CPC and the Chinese government have the strength and the confidence to deal with complexities and overcome risks and threats, and the ability to take great strides forward on the path to national reunification."
Taking into consideration the overall goal of national rejuvenation in the context of global change on a scale unseen in a century, the CPC and the Chinese government have continued to follow the CPC's fundamental guidelines on the Taiwan question and implement its principles and policies towards Taiwan, and have made concrete efforts to promote peaceful cross-Straits relations, integrate the development of the two sides, and work towards national reunification, the white paper says.
Once peaceful reunification is achieved under One Country, Two Systems, it will lay new foundations for China to make further progress and achieve national rejuvenation. At the same time, it will create huge opportunities for social and economic development in Taiwan and bring tangible benefits to the people of Taiwan, the white paper says.
"The journey ahead cannot be all smooth sailing. However, as long as we Chinese on both sides of the Taiwan Straits devote our ingenuity and energy to the same goal, let there be no doubt - we will tolerate no foreign interference in Taiwan, we will thwart any attempt to divide our country, and we will combine as a mighty force for national reunification and rejuvenation. The historic goal of reuniting our motherland must be realized and will be realized," concludes the white paper.
