Taiwan NEWS

BEIJING -- China warned Taiwan's pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party on Wednesday that its stance on relations with Beijing could threaten a hard-won state of peaceful coexistence, as the island's closely watched elections draw near.
China has slowly ramped up the rhetoric ahead of Taiwan's Jan. 14 presidential and parliamentary polls, offering both economic incentives for the self-ruled island and making veiled threats that a vote for the DPP would harm vital trade ties.

China has made little secret of its distaste for the DPP, even as its candidate, Tsai Ing-wen, tries to lay out a more moderate line than former President Chen Shui-bian, whose strong support for Taiwan's independence infuriated Beijing.

Speaking at a regular news briefing, Yang Yi, spokesman for China's Taiwan Affairs Office, said a return to those days would be a disaster. The DPP's Chen held office from 2000 to 2008.

“Upholding the 'Taiwan independence' platform of one country on either side of the Taiwan Strait would be a step backward into the era of Chen Shui-bian, and that would inevitably threaten the peaceful development of cross-strait ties,” he said.

Yang repeated that whoever is in charge on the island must accept the “1992 Consensus,” referring to Beijing's cherished “one China” policy, which includes Taiwan as part of China.

“Denying the '1992 Consensus' will wreck the basis for cross-strait consultations, which will of course be unable to continue,” Yang said.

“I will not make any comments about the election, (but) we still hope that compatriots on both sides of the Strait will work hard to maintain the current good trend of the peaceful development of relations,” he added.

It is just matter of time that Taiwan will be incorporated into Mainland china, but we just don't know when. The process depends the diplomatic ties between the two states. The election is significant for the incorporation, so Chinese communist leaders are trying their best to ensure that the new leader will be a pro-Chinese one.

Oct 1 is the 70th anniversary of founding of the People's Republic of China, and Oct 10 is the "National Day" of the Republic of China (now based only in Taiwan, or a previous country but a current small island). If you haven't seen the military parade shown the National Day of communist China in western media, I can post some video for you to get some rough idea later at request. Formerly communist party had a strong rival KMT (aka Nationalist Party) in the Civil War of China during 1945-1949 period, but unfornately it has been relegated to be an opposition party in Taiwan. By economic power, mainland communist China is much stronger than Taiwan, so it may not need any military force to unite the country in future. Earlier the pop cultures of Taiwan could still attract the young people of mainland China, but now it is not the case any more. So it is useless for the ruling class of Taiwan to stage any resistence against the historical trend.
