The remarks came after Chinese State Councilor and Defense Minister Wei Fenghe reiterated China's firm position on Taiwan during a speech at the Shangri-La Dialogue, warning against any forces' attempt to separate the island from the country.
China must be and will be reunified and it is also the inevitable requirement of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation in the new era, said An.
