Xi Jinping says Taiwan 'must and will be' reunited with China

 

Chinese President Xi Jinping has urged the people of Taiwan to accept it "must and will be" reunited with China.

In a speech marking 40 years since the start of improving ties, he reiterated Beijing's call for peaceful unification on a one-country-two-systems basis.

However, he also warned that China reserved the right to use force.

While Taiwan is self-governed and de facto independent, it has never formally declared independence from the mainland.

Beijing considers the island to be a breakaway province and Mr Xi's comments are in line with China's long-standing policy towards reunification.

Only take advice from people who have what you want.
You don't decide your future. You decide your habits, and your habits decide your future.
Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power. - Abraham Lincoln.

Taiwan gay marriage: Parliament legalises same-sex unions
 
Taiwan's parliament has become the first in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage following a vote on Friday.
 
In 2017, the island's constitutional court ruled that same-sex couples had the right to legally marry.
 
Parliament was given a two-year deadline and was required to pass the changes by 24 May.
 
Lawmakers debated three different bills to legalise same-sex unions and the government's bill, the most progressive of the three, was passed.
