(Dan Tri) – Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang did not use the word `peaceful` in his statement to parliament about the `reunification` of Taiwan.

Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang spoke at the opening session of the parliamentary session in Beijing on May 22.

In a report at the opening session of the Chinese parliament today, May 22, Prime Minister Li Keqiang declared that China `resolutely opposes and prevents any separatist activities aimed at gaining independence for China.`

Premier Li said China will improve policies and measures to promote exchanges and cooperation across the Taiwan Strait, and protect the prosperity of the Taiwanese people.

“We will encourage them to join us in opposing Taiwan independence and promoting China’s reunification.

In a speech at the inauguration ceremony for her second term on May 20, leader Tsai Ing-wen said Taiwan does not accept becoming part of China under the `one country, two systems` model.

Since Ms. Tsai Ing-wen was re-elected, Beijing has increased exercises near Taiwan, deploying aircraft and warships near the island.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian on May 21 announced that Beijing opposes the US plan to sell weapons to Taiwan, and said that there had been discussions with the US side on this issue.

Mr. Zhao’s statement came after the US State Department announced approval of a plan to sell 18 MK-48 Mod 6 heavy torpedoes and accompanying equipment to Taiwan at a cost of about 180 million USD.

Mr. Zhao urged the US to adhere to the `One China` principle, cancel plans to sell weapons to Taiwan, and end military relations with Taiwan before this move harms bilateral relations as well as peace.

The US and many countries around the world do not have official diplomatic relations with Taiwan.
