RESTRICTIONS: Broadcast: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Digital: NO USE JAPAN, NO USE TAIWAN Taiwan has rejected China's offer of reunification under the 'one country, two systems' formula.

CNA reports that during China's National Day on October 1, President Xi Jinping vowed to uphold the 'one country, two systems' model in Hong Kong and Macau, and proposed a similar arrangement for Taiwan.

Taiwan president Tsai Ing-wen rejected the offer, calling the arrangement a failure, as evidenced by the current state of unrest in Hong Kong and the violent suppression of its citizens' freedoms. Reuters reports that according to Tsai, Beijing's policies toward Taiwan pose a danger to regional stability.

She says that regardless of party or political affiliation, the general consensus among Taiwan's 23 million people is to reject "one country, two systems." RUNDOWN SHOWS: 1.

Taiwan boosting combat capabilities VOICEOVER (in English): "CNA reports that during China's National Day on October 1, President Xi Jinping vowed to uphold the 'one country, two systems' model in Hong Kong and Macau, and proposed a similar arrangement for Taiwan." "According to The Economist, the policy formulated by then-Chinese president Deng Xiaoping would allow Taiwan to retain a separate administration, a capitalist system, and its own armed forces so long as it recognized Beijing's Communist government as legitimate." "Taiwan president Tsai Ing-wen rejected the offer, calling the arrangement a failure, as evidenced by the current state of unrest in Hong Kong and the violent suppression of its citizens' freedoms." "Reuters reports that according to Tsai, Beijing's policies toward Taiwan pose a danger to regional stability." "She says that regardless of party or political affiliation, the general consensus among Taiwan's 23 million people is to reject 'one country, two systems.'" "According to Reuters, Beijing has steadily increased pressure on Taiwan to seek reunification, sending out warnings by flying regular bomber patrols around it.

" "China has also been trying to isolate Taiwan diplomatically.

Since Tsai came to power, seven countries have switched allegiance to Beijing, leaving Taiwan with only 15 nations it has formal state-to-state relations with." "Despite this, Tsai claims the country is undaunted, and is working to increase combat capabilities by purchasing advanced weapons from overseas and developing home-made aircraft."
