Nobody can force Taiwan into submission: President Tsai amid Chinese pressure

Oct 11, 2021 13:03 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Speaking at Taiwan's National Day celebrations, president Tsai Ing-wen on Sunday vowed to defend the island from China's rising pressure for reunification.

Tsai contrasted Taiwan's vibrant democracy with China's deeply authoritarian, single-party Communist state and said that Taiwan would prevent the status quo from being changed unilaterally.

She further said that Taiwan would demonstrate its determination to defend itself in order to ensure that nobody can force Taiwan to take China's path.

The path that China has laid out for Taiwan offers neither a free and democratic way of life, nor sovereignty for its 23 million people, Tsai added.

The statement comes amid increasing tensions between Taiwan and China as China sent a record-breaking number of fighter jets towards Taiwan last week.
