Xiamen, June 15, 2024, The Europe Today: Senior official Wang Huning emphasized on Saturday that China possesses the resolve, confidence, and capability to thwart any separatist attempts for “Taiwan independence.” Wang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee and chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC), made this assertion while addressing the main meeting of the 16th Strait Forum in Xiamen, Fujian Province.

During his speech, Wang reiterated China’s unwavering position on the Taiwan issue, emphasizing that any form of separatist activity aimed at achieving Taiwan’s independence would be resolutely countered by the Chinese government. He underscored that China’s determination to maintain national unity and territorial integrity remains steadfast.

“The Chinese government and people have the resolve, the confidence, and the ability to smash separatist attempts for ‘Taiwan independence’ in any form,” Wang stated. His remarks reflect China’s long-standing policy and reinforce its commitment to the principle of “one China.”

The 16th Strait Forum, held in Xiamen, serves as a crucial platform for cross-strait dialogue and cooperation, bringing together participants from both sides of the Taiwan Strait to discuss issues of mutual interest and foster closer ties. Wang’s address at this significant event highlights the centrality of the Taiwan issue in China’s domestic and foreign policy agenda.

Wang’s strong statement comes amid ongoing tensions in the Taiwan Strait, where geopolitical dynamics have heightened concerns over regional stability.
