China’s ambassador to the United States thanked Elon Musk for proposing a special administration zone for Taiwan.
At same, Taiwan’s de facto ambassador to Washington reprimanded Elon Musk saying its “freedom and democracy are not for sale.”
“Taiwan sells many products, but our freedom and democracy are not for sale,” Hsiao Bi-khim, Taiwan’s de facto ambassador to Washington, tweeted on Saturday. “Any lasting proposal for our future must be determined peacefully, free from coercion, and respectful of the democratic wishes of the people of Taiwan.”
China’s ambassador to the United States, Qin Gang, stressed Beijing’s call for “peaceful reunification and ‘one country, two systems'” for the island in a tweet on Saturday while thanking Musk.
“My recommendation . . . would be to figure out a special administrative zone for Taiwan that is reasonably palatable, probably won’t make everyone happy,” Musk told the Financial Times in an interview.
