China has used new routes across the Taiwan Strait and Taiwan has strongly protested that the relationship between the two sides has fallen to a new low level. The statement of the Taiwanese Foreign Ministry said that President Tsai Ing-wen convened a session of the National Security Council on Sunday. Previously, China announced that it would open four new routes in the airspace near Taiwan without notifying Taiwan, and that civil aviation companies would use this route that day. The Taiwanese Foreign Ministry said that Beijing's practices violated the agreement reached by the Airlines of the airlines in March 2015. Analysts and politicians speculate that Beijing knows that Taipei will oppose this practice, but it still opens these paths to give two more years of pressure to Tsai the English government. During the civil war in China in the 1940s, Kuomintang left the continent and transferred the government to Taiwan, since then both sides have been divided. However, China insists that both parties will reunite, if necessary, and use force. Surveys show that most Taiwanese people oppose reunification. Since Cai Yingwen became president in May 2016, he did not want to accept the Beijing recognition of condition one China to continue the dialogue. China is very unhappy with this.
