Chinese President Xi Jinping has warned Taiwan to work to unify the country and get out of its “grim” situation.

Self-governing democratic Taiwan is usually claimed by China as part of its territory, and the Asian country has stressed several times that it will one day recapture the country.

In a congratulatory message to Eric Chu, who has just been elected leader of the China-friendly Kuomintang Party (KMT), China’s President XI Jinping said the Communist Party and the KMT should work together.

“In the past, our two parties have insisted on a ‘1992 consensus’ and a rejection of ‘Taiwan independence’ in order to promote peaceful developments in cross-strait relations,” Xi said in the letter released by the KMT.

He called on the two parties to unite for the “unification of the country” and to ensure that the “grim” situation is resolved as soon as possible.

“The situation in the strait is currently complex and grim,” he said, calling on the parties to seek peace and “the unification of the country” together.

Chu responded by saying he hoped the two parties “seek common ground and respect their differences” to ensure and promote peace and stability in the region.

Meanwhile, Beijing has put military, diplomatic and economic pressure on Taiwan to admit and implement the “One China” idea.
