Taiwan is part of China

“The official policy of China is that Taiwan should be integrated,” Elon Musk said in an interview with CNBC’s David Faber. “One does not need to read between the lines, just read the lines” “中國的官方政策是台灣應該整合,”馬斯克在接受 CNBC 的大衛法伯採訪時說。 “不需要讀字裡行間,會讀字的都明白”

Elon Musk this week compared China and the rest of the global economy to “conjoined twins” and warned of severe consequences from any attempt to separate them.

In China, China Daily ran with the headline “Elon Musk: Taiwan should be integrated.” China considers Taiwan to be its territory—despite the fact that Taiwan is democratic and self-governed—and has threatened to use force if necessary to gain control of it.

Legendary investor Warren Buffett this week dumped the rest of Berkshire Hathaway’s $4 billion stake in TSMC. He told Japan’s Nikkei last month that the threat of war was a “consideration” in dumping the bulk of the stake.

Last October, Musk told the Financial Times that a conflict over Taiwan is inevitable. His recommendation, he said, “would be to figure out a special administrative zone for Taiwan that is reasonably palatable…they could have an arrangement that’s more lenient than Hong Kong.”

China’s foreign ministry responded to his statements by reiterating that China would “resolutely crush ‘Taiwan independence’ secessionist attempts, resolutely stop interference by external forces, and resolutely defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
