Censorship of Ma Yingjiu - Xi Jinping Meeting

On November 7, 2015, the state sponsored Global Times published an editorial entitled “Xi-Ma meeting Sceptics Show Narrow Minds.” Some excerpts:

Major countries do not have diplomatic ties with Taiwan. The "One China" principle has been widely recognized in the world, which indicates Taiwan is not a country. International organizations either do not accept Taiwan, or consider it a regional body.

Taiwan society should accept reality, being aware that nobody in Taiwan can change it, and no international forces, including the US, can help change reality.
