A senior Chinese diplomat has demanded that Germany support its “peaceful” conquest of neighbouring Taiwan.
Wang Yi, the head of the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee Foreign Affairs Commission Office, has demanded that Germany support efforts to peacefully conquer Taiwan, multiple Chinese and German media outlets have reported.
It comes as Western European nations weaken their support for the island nation, with Emmanuel Macron openly coming out last week to say that the European Union should reduce its reliance on America and stay out of any future conflict with China over Taiwan.
In what appears to be an attempt to capitalise on this sentiment, Wang has now told the German delegation headed up by Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock currently visiting Beijing that they should abandon any support for Taiwanese independence, and instead back China’s attempts to finally gain control of the long-independent territory.
“To maintain stability in the Taiwan Strait, it is necessary to firmly oppose separatist activities related to ‘Taiwan independence’,” Reuters reports Wang as saying, with Chinese state-run newspaper The Global Times adding that the diplomat compared such support to Chinese support to Germany’s post-Cold War reunification.
