China official threatens worst-case scenario if Taiwan amends law

China’s Taiwan Affairs Office Spokesman Ma Xiaoguang (馬曉光) warned Taiwan “not to underestimate the strong will and determination of China’s 1.4 billion people to maintain sovereignty and territory intact” at a media briefing on Saturday (May 9).

The proposed amendment, led by DPP lawmaker Tsai Yi-yu (蔡易餘), wants to delete “before national unification” along with several other phrases. These are said to be the product of a mutual misconception between the Chinese Communist Party and Taiwan’s Nationalist Party at the time it was implemented in 1992, one suggesting both sides will one day reunify.
