Newsline: China’s top diplomat tells Germany to support peaceful Taiwan ‘reunification’

China’s top diplomat Wang Yi “hopes and believes” Germany will support China’s “peaceful reunification” with Taiwan, the Chinese foreign ministry said in a statement on Saturday. Wang made the remarks at a meeting with German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, who is visiting China until Saturday, adding that China once supported Germany’s reunification. “To maintain stability in the Taiwan Strait, it is necessary to firmly oppose separatist activities related to ‘Taiwan independence’,” Wang said, adding that Taiwan’s “return to China” was an important component of the post-World War II international order.

European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell echoed her remarks. Taiwan’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Saturday it strongly approved of Baerbock’s comments.
