Taiwan President William Lai dares China

Taipei, May 20 (UNI) "Stop threatening Taiwan," William Lai, the Taiwan president told China on Monday minutes after his inauguration.
Newly inaugurated President Lai called on China to stop threatening the island and accept its democracy. Lai urged Beijing to replace confrontation with dialogue, shortly after being sworn in. Lai is loathed by China and seen as a "secessionist" in Beijing.
He also said Taiwan would never back down in the face of intimidation from China, which has long claimed the island as its own, a BBC report said. It has also ramped up pressure on Taiwan in recent years.
