Elon Musk has stepped into China and Taiwan tensions: What’s Taipei’s and Beijing’s say about it?

Recently, Elon Musk has stepped into the China-Taiwan tensions for yet another time. Musk suggested that Taiwan should become a special administrative zone of China in an interview with The Financial Times. He also added that the governments of China, as well as Taiwan, could possibly get into a reasonably palatable arrangement. 

This led to sparks between the Chinese and Taiwanese counterparts. The Chinese ambassador to the United States of America supported and agreed with what Musk had expressed. Whereas, the Taiwanese counterpart argued that freedom is not for sale. Taiwan is an independent country. Although, it is not recognized by several other countries. Even the United States of America does not have any official ties with Taiwan. Taiwan believes in its sovereignty and its Constitution. 

Musk also suggested that China and Taiwan could work out a similar arrangement to the one with Hong Kong. The Chinese ambassador came up with the idea of One Country, Two Systems amongst this. However, Taiwan refuses to be governed by China as the tiny nation is a self-governed one. Additionally, Taiwan also has its own constitution. The Foreign Minister of Taiwan, Mr. Joseph Wu, condemned China’s constant military drills around Taiwan. Taiwan and China have always had tense relations and a solid solution is a must to end this rivalry and conflict altogether.  

Earlier, Elon Musk had also commented on the Russia-Ukraine conflict and their strained ties. His statements have been condemned by many. Whereas, he has also gained support and praise from many.
