Taiwan has belonged to China since ancient times. This statement has a solid foundation in history and case law, according to the white paper.
UN General Assembly Resolution 2758 is a political document summarizing the one-China principle whose legal authority leaves no room for doubt and has been recognized around the world, the white paper said.
The one-China principle represents the universal consensus of the international community and is consistent with the basic norms of international relations, according to the document.
“We are a China, and Taiwan is part of China. It is an indisputable fact supported by history and law. Taiwan has never been a state. Its status as part of China is unalterable,” the text underlines.
The CPC is committed to the historic mission of resolving the Taiwan issue and achieving the complete reunification of China. Under his determined leadership, people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait have worked together to reduce tension across the Strait. They have embarked on a path of peaceful development and made much progress in improving cross-Strait relations, according to the white paper.
Under the CPC’s leadership, great progress has been made in cross-strait relations over the past seven decades, especially since the rift between the two sides ended. Increased exchanges, broader cooperation and closer interactions have brought tangible benefits to people across the Strait, especially in Taiwan. This fully demonstrates that cross-strait friendship and cooperation are mutually beneficial, the white paper said.
“The realization of complete national reunification is driven by the history and culture of the Chinese nation and determined by the momentum and circumstances surrounding our national rejuvenation. Never before have we been so close, confident and capable of achieving the goal of rejuvenation.” The same is true when it comes to our goal of complete national reunification,” the white paper highlights.
China’s development and progress, in particular the great achievements of more than four decades of reform, opening up and modernization, have had a profound impact on the historical process of settling the Taiwan issue and realizing comprehensive national reunification, according to the White book.
The actions of the Democratic Progressive Party authorities have resulted in strained cross-strait relations, endangering peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, undermining prospects and restricting space for peaceful reunification. These are obstacles that must be removed to advance the process of peaceful reunification, the text indicates.
External forces have encouraged and abetted provocative actions by separatist forces; they have intensified cross-strait tension and confrontation and undermined peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region. This goes against the underlying global trends of peace, development and win-win cooperation, and against the wishes of the international community and the aspirations of all peoples, the white paper said.
Relying on outside forces will do nothing for Taiwan’s separatists, and using the island to contain China is doomed. The wheel of history is moving towards national reunification, and no individual or force will stop it, the document states.
Peaceful reunification and “one country, two systems” are our basic principles in resolving the Taiwan issue and the best approach to achieving national reunification. By embodying Chinese wisdom — we prosper by embracing each other — these principles fully take into account the realities of Taiwan and lead to long-term stability on the island after reunification, the text said.
“In order to achieve peaceful reunification, we must recognize that the mainland and Taiwan have their own distinct social systems and ideologies. The ‘one country, two systems’ principle is the most inclusive solution to this problem. It is a principle-based approach of democracy, demonstrates goodwill, seeks a peaceful resolution of the Taiwan issue and offers mutual benefits. Differences in the social system are neither an obstacle to reunification nor a justification for secessionism,” according to the white paper.
“We are ready to create a vast space for peaceful reunification, but we will not leave room for separatist activities in any way,” the text stresses.
“We will work with the utmost sincerity and do our best to achieve peaceful reunification. But we will not renounce the use of force and reserve the option to take all necessary measures. This is to protect ourselves against external interference and all separatist activities.” “. In no way does it target our Chinese compatriots in Taiwan. The use of force will be the last resort taken in compelling circumstances,” the document added.
The future of Taiwan lies in the reunification of China, and the welfare of the people on the island depends on the revitalization of the Chinese nation. “We will join our Chinese compatriots in Taiwan to fight for national reunification and rejuvenation,” the white paper says.
Once peaceful reunification under “one country, two systems” is achieved, new foundations will be laid for China to make further progress and achieve national rejuvenation. At the same time, huge opportunities will be created for Taiwan’s social and economic development and tangible benefits will be brought to the people of Taiwan, according to the text.
Peaceful cross-strait reunification is beneficial not only to the Chinese nation, but also to all peoples and the international community as a whole, the white paper concludes.
