FRANCE 24 spoke to Lu Shaye, the Chinese ambassador to France. He insisted Beijing was prioritising “peaceful reunification” with Taiwan, but said the Chinese authorities had “not ruled out the use of force” – not with the intention of targeting “the people of Taiwan”, but rather to dissuade “separatists in Taiwan” and certain “foreign forces”. The Chinese diplomat also said he was “sure”  there would be no mass surge in Covid-19 cases during the Winter Olympics, which open in Beijing on February 4.

Taiwan, officially the Republic of China, is a country in East Asia. Neighbouring countries include the People’s Republic of China to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south.

The political status of Taiwan is complicated. The Republic of China (ROC) is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. Taiwan maintains official diplomatic relations with 14 out of 193 UN member states and the Holy See.
