A New White Paper proposing a Chinese Ruled Taiwan is missing Promises from the older White Papers
The Mainland Affairs Council in Taiwan claims the white paper was "full of lies of wishful thinking and disregarded the facts."
Once upon a time, China promised not to send troops to Taiwan if it takes control of the island. China also promised there would be no administrators sent over either. However, Chinese President Xi Jinping has offered an official document today that eliminates those promises previously made.
The white paper on China’s position on Taiwan comes after a chain of days in which the Chinese military conducted exercises near the island. In two previous white papers, China claimed the government "will not send troops or administrative personnel to be based in Taiwan after achieving reunification.”
A proposal to Taiwan was given by the Chinese government that states Taiwan can return to its rule under a “one country, two systems” model. Every single mainstream political party in Taiwan has rejected this plan. In one of the white papers, this one written in 2000, there’s a line that reads “anything can be negotiated” as long as Taiwan accepts there is only one China and doesn’t seek any form of independence from said one China. This is yet another piece missing from the most recent white paper.
The Mainland Affairs Council in Taiwan claims the white paper was "full of lies of wishful thinking and disregarded the facts. Only Taiwan's 23 million people have the right to decide on the future of Taiwan, and they will never accept an outcome set by an autocratic regime."
