Xi Jinping: China ‘Will Inevitably Be Reunified’ With Taiwan

Chinese President Xi Jinping has once again pledged to take over the self-governing island of Taiwan, declaring that the island nation would “inevitably be reunified” with China and vowing that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) would “prevent anyone from splitting” from China again.

Xi’s comments came during a symposium on Tuesday commemorating what would have been the 130th birthday of dictator and mass murderer Mao Zedong, the communist revolutionary who founded modern China.

“Achieving the complete reunification of the motherland is the general trend, the great cause, and the aspiration of the people. The motherland must be reunified and will inevitably be reunified,” Xi said regarding China and Taiwan while speaking at the Mao symposium.

After Mao and the CCP seized power in 1949, the previous government of China — which was led by Gen. Chiang Kai-shek — fled to Taiwan and formed their own free nation. Since then, the CCP has repeatedly insisted that Taiwan belongs to China and has no right to self-govern — declaring the island nation a rogue province that will eventually be reunited with China, whether by force or manipulation.

Xi has previously threatened on several occasions that Taiwan would be reunited with China by force if necessary.

“We persist in striving for the prospect of peaceful reunification with the greatest sincerity. However, there is no commitment to renounce the use of force and the option to take all necessary measures is retained,” the dictator declared during a speech at the opening of the 20th Congress of China’s Communist Party in October 2022.

He indicated support for similar actions during his Tuesday symposium remarks — essentially threatening that China has the “capabilities” to force Taiwan to reunify, according to an official Chinese government transcript of Xi’s speech.

“The Chinese people have a firm will, full confidence, and sufficient capabilities to resolutely prevent anyone from splitting Taiwan from China in any way,” Xi said, according to the translation.

The dictator went on to claim that China is dedicated to building “a world of lasting peace, universal security, common prosperity, openness, and inclusiveness, cleanness and beauty,” and vowed that “no matter what level of development it reaches, China will never seek hegemony or engage in expansion.”

Meanwhile, despite Xi’s claims about peace, China’s actions suggest it desires war. As Just The News noted, “China has recently been building up its military capabilities, including nuclear warheads. Over the past year, China has sent fighter jets and ships near Taiwan on several occasions in apparent shows of strength.”
