Chinese regime bans solo travelers to Taiwan out of fear
Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen Thursday condemns the Chinese communist regime for banning individual mainland Chinese citizens from visiting Taiwan.
The outspoken leader also criticizes the Chinese regime for intentionally creating restlessness in the region with its military drills near to the island.
"I want to tell the Beijing authorities that China using tourism as a political tool will only disgust Taiwanese people,” retorts Tsai Ing-wen.
The Chinese Ministry of Culture and Tourism has announced the ban Wednesday. The one-sentence notice states solo trips are suspended from Thursday, August 1, "in light of the current relations between the two sides."
“Tourism should not be politicized and politicized tourism will not have a stable development,” says Tsai, who believes that "self-guided tours to Taiwan are the best way for Chinese young people to know about Taiwan.”
“It is also the most natural and honest way for people across the Taiwan Strait to do exchanges,” Tsai continues, stating that now these young people's rights have been ripped off and “I think this is really too bad for them," she said.
