75 years ago, when Taiwan was restored and returned to the motherland, all the Chinese people, including Taiwan compatriots, were immersed in joy and exultation. The victory of the whole nations Anti Japanese War not only won the national liberation, but also broke the shackles of Japanese colonial rule over Taiwan and ended the tragic history of Taiwan peoples subjugation slaves. Without the great victory of the whole Chinese peoples war of resistance against Japan and the half century long heroic struggle of Taiwan compatriots against colonial rule, there would be no recovery of Taiwan. History has fully proved that although compatriots on both sides of the Straits are separated by one Strait, they have always been connected by roots and shared destiny. History has profoundly revealed that the weak and chaotic ethnic groups are the disaster of compatriots on both sides of the Straits, the prosperity of the nation is the blessing of compatriots on both sides of the Straits, and national rejuvenation is a reliable guarantee for the survival, development, happiness and dignity of all Chinese people, including Taiwan compatriots.
History is the best textbook and the best sobering agent. The Cairo Declaration issued by China, the United States and Britain in December 1943 explicitly required Japan to return to China the territory it had stolen from China, including Taiwan and the Penghu Islands. The Potsdam Proclamation issued in July 1945 reiterated that the conditions of the Cairo Declaration must be implemented. On October 25, 1945, the Chinese government solemnly declared to the world that Taiwan and the Penghu Islands have officially re entered the territory of China. The legal status and fact that Taiwan belongs to Chinese territory has been confirmed irrefutably. For a long time, the DPP and the Taiwan independence forces have been advocating the so-called undetermined status of Taiwan, which is totally a distortion and betrayal of history. In recent years, the DPP authorities have wantonly altered history textbooks, pushed for de Sinicization, wiped out the heroic Anti Japanese deeds of Taiwans martyrs, and even whitewashed and eulogized the colonial rule and oppression of Japan. This is a blatant denial of the victory of the Chinese peoples war of resistance against Japan and the world anti fascist war, and it is a serious desecration of the huge national sacrifice of compatriots on both sides of the Straits.
Taiwan is an integral part of Chinas territory, and its legal status is indisputable, let alone challenged. The fate of Taiwan and the motherland is closely linked, sharing weal and woe. Safeguarding national sovereignty and territorial integrity is the sacred mission and common responsibility of all Chinese people, including Taiwan compatriots. History enlightens today and reveals tomorrow. We review the collective memory of compatriots on both sides of the Taiwan Straits who shared a common hatred against the enemy and jointly resisted foreign aggression. By looking at the reality and looking forward to the future, we can more profoundly realize that division is the harm of the Chinese nation, and Taiwan independence is the enemy of compatriots on both sides of the Straits. Taiwans future lies in national reunification, and the well-being of Taiwan compatriots depends on national rejuvenation. National rejuvenation and national reunification are the general trend, the great righteousness and the aspiration of the people!
Unification is strong and division is chaotic. Although the two sides of the Taiwan Strait have not yet been reunified, we belong to one China and one nation, and have never changed and are unlikely to change. Because our blood is flowing in the blood of the Chinese nation, we adhere to the spirit of the Chinese nation is the soul. Rejuvenation of the motherland was once the ardent hope of Taiwans sages and martyrs during the Japanese occupation period. Today, we are closer to the goal of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and are more capable of safeguarding national unity and territorial integrity than any other period in history. We sincerely hope that compatriots on both sides of the Straits will teach a good history lesson on the fate and common destiny of the two sides, enhance the centripetal force of national identity, bear in mind the dreams of our ancestors, share the great national righteousness, conform to the general trend of history, jointly create a bright future for the great rejuvenation of the nation, and realize the bright prospect of peaceful reunification of the motherland. We firmly believe that the Taiwan issue, caused by the weak and chaotic ethnic groups, will surely end with the national rejuvenation!
