2692 - Will pursue democracy against authoritarian China: Taiwan Prez
Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, in her New Year address, said, "We'll...show the world that democratic Taiwan has the courage to step out from the shadow of authoritarian China." "We'll not bow to pressure," she added. This comes amid growing tensions between China and Taiwan and repeated violation of Taiwanese airspace by Chinese military. China claims Taiwan as its own territory.
