Taipei, April 9 (CNA) President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) on Tuesday said that Taiwan is ready to defend its democratic way of life amid “unprecedented challenges” from China.

Speaking to U.S. think tanks in Washington during a video conference, Tsai said the nation’s “democratic way of life faces unprecedented challenges” from Beijing, which has used multiple approaches to influence public opinion in Taiwan over the years.

“Using economic incentives, control over sources of information and critical subversion; China’s objective is to divide our society, erode trust in public institutions, and make people question our traditional alliances,” she said.

Tsai reaffirmed the resolution of Taiwanese people to defend democracy and freedom.
