Okinawa, June 24 (CNA) China’s worst enemy is that it does not genuinely embrace

Former President Lee Teng-hui (李登輝)

democracy and freedom and Taiwan, which does so, will not be its enemy, former President Lee Teng-hui (李登輝) said on Sunday in Japan.

Lee made the remarks at a dinner gathering with Taiwanese expatriates in Okinawa, in which he said that Taiwan will someday present itself on world stage with its own name.

In the 21st century, China has become an assertive player on economic, political, military, and technological fronts, but it has been seen as a hegemony, not a civilized country upholding the ideas of democracy and freedom, Lee said.

Lee said that China has become the “most destabilizing factor” in Asia and has caused disturbances that threaten the security of countries in the region.
