Taiwan part of China, reunification a 'must' - Xi

China is firmly against "those who conspire" behind the idea of independent Taiwan, the country's President Xi Jinping stated, adding Beijing "reserves the option of taking all necessary measures" against outside forces that interfere with peaceful reunification between the island and the mainland.

"We have achieved great victory on defeating any pro-independence or separatist activities. Nobody, and no party, can change the historical and legal that Taiwan is part of China and that both sides of the strait belong to China," Xi said in a speech commemorating the 40th anniversary of a "Message to compatriots in Taiwan" which called for peaceful reunification.

The unification "is a historical conclusion drawn over the 70 years of the development of cross-Strait relations, and a must for the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation in the new era," the head of Chinese government concluded.
