China “does not need to use force” for the desired “reunification” with Taiwan.
Russian President Vladimir Putin, in an interview with Cnbc, cited President Xi Jinping’s recent comments suggesting the possibility of peaceful reunification and Beijing’s “state philosophy” that there is no threat of military confrontation.
“I think China doesn’t need to use force: it’s a huge powerful economy, and in terms of purchasing parity, it’s number one in the world ahead of the US. By increasing this economic potential it is able to achieve its national goals. I see no threat.”
