Will not compromise on Taiwan says Xi but wants India to Compromise on AksaiChin, Shaksgam Valley and Tibet

President Ursula von der Leyen has dismissed as “unrealistic dreams” any expectations his country might agree to compromise and make concessions on the Taiwan issue, China’s Central Television reported on Thursday.

“Anyone who expects China to make compromises and concessions on the Taiwan issue shots oneself in the foot,” Xi said. These are unrealistic dreams.”

The Chinese government and people, he said, oppose the ballyhoo over the island. Xi stressed that the Taiwan issue was central to China’s key interests.

Von der Leyen and Macron are visiting China April 5-7.

Taiwan has been governed by its local administration since 1949 when the remaining Kuomintang forces led by Chiang Kai-shek (1887-1975) fled to the island after suffering a defeat in China’s civil war.

Since then, Taiwan has preserved the flag and some other symbols of the Republic of China that had existed in mainland China before the Communists came to power. Beijing regards the island as one of its provinces and this position is supported by most countries, including Russia.

However the Same Xi expects India to Compromise on Aksai Chin, Shaksgam Valley and Tibet….simply great. China also has the temerity to lay claims on Arunachal Pradesh.
