Lu warns on ‘silent annexation’ by China (2013)Edit

Annette Lu (2013) cited in: "Lu warns on ‘silent annexation’ by China" in The Taipei Times, 30 April 2013 : Statements made during the founding ceremony of Anti-One China Principle Union in Taipei, 29 April 2013.

  • The silent annexation is ongoing. The Democratic Progressive Party’s loss of power might be tolerable, but the loss of sovereignty in our time would be an irreversible mistake that would jeopardize future generations.
  • Taiwan does not oppose that there is only one China in the world, but that does not mean Taiwan is part of China.
  • We should never have a doubt about Taiwan's independent status. Taiwan has been an independent and sovereign country since 23 March 1996, the day of its first direct presidential election.
