Li Zhaoxing exchange with a Taiwanese reporter on democracy:

At the opening ceremony of the CPPCC annual meeting, foreign minister Li Zhaoxing was surrounded by reporters. Here is an exchange between Minister Li and a Taiwanese reporter, as reported on club.china.com, translated by CDT:

When a reporter asked Minister Li about China’s policy on Taiwan, Li answered: “All policies follow the will of the motherland and will of the people.”
“Do you mean you want them to vote?” a Taiwanese reporter asked.
Li Zhaoxing (laughing): “This question is a tricky one. The answer is No. No!”
