Beijing unveiled a plan this week to further integrate Taiwan with a coastal province in China, in what appears to be a playbook for taking control of the island in an effort to “completely reunify” the two nations.
“Solving the Taiwan issue and realizing the complete reunification of the motherland is the unswerving historical task of the Communist Party of China,” the Chinese Communist Party’s Central Committee and the State Council plan states. “Fujian has a unique position and role in the overall situation of Taiwan.”
Beijing intends Fujian province to serve as a “demonstration zone” for further integration with Taiwan, the plan states.
