taipei - The Taiwanese government has abandoned statements by Chinese leader Xi Jinping. He once again made it clear that he would never allow the island state of China to turn back.
'We will never allow an organization or political party to detach China from China at any time or in any form,' said Xi against over two thousand delegates. He said that China is prepared to counter Taiwan's independence 'in every form'.
Beijing sees Taiwan as an apostate province. The Taiwanese authorities made clear in their reaction to think otherwise. She stressed that Taiwan is a 'sovereign country' and that the 23 million inhabitants themselves are about their future.
