6:00 am
compiled, he's the countries long search for justice. finally, coming to an end, the sancho taught special coverage from october 11th on august 0. lou anti one's national day president, sighing when says her country will not bow to pressure from china. ah, hello, i'm darn jordan. this is al jazeera la you from doha. also coming up the united nations refugee agency slams libya with migrant detention and human rights abuses. folds opened in iraq's elections and the next few hours we'll look at what's on the minds of voters plus i'm adam across the in zimbabwe. a country that has more elephants then they can handle. i've been reporting from wind gay way,
6:01 am
animals and humans, a fight and get a challenge. living side by side, ah, di one's president says her country will not bounce a pressure from beijing speaking during national day celebrations. shying away and also said her government will continue to bolster its defenses. comes a day off, the chinese president, she shing thing said they'll be a peaceful reunification with the island. in the past week, nearly a 150 chinese warplanes have approached high ones at defense. so robot bride has been following that speech from hong kong. rob said this speech by taiwan is president, comes as we are saying. they're against the backdrop of growing tensions between beijing, anti pay. how important was this speech day, but a sign when didn't hold back in her criticism, a beijing, what did you make of it? that's why there was a typically up beat, very defiant message from
6:02 am
a saying when really focusing, i suppose on the increase intentions that we have seen across the straight to the taiwan strait. talking about the chinese that pressure increasing more and more. she said i'd urging taiwanese not to relax. they can't afford to relax, talking about the severe and a complex challenges of beijing. it's expected expansionism into the at surrounding c. she mentioned the east c at where taiwan is located. that is, of course, where we saw the incursion last weekend by these waves of war plains, from the mainland china. interestingly, she referred to these incursions by maidens by a croft these fighters and bombers from the bay land and said it gave that taiwan the chance to show what it has a cause. it scrambles its own fight to jets, to i fly, go up and intercept if they need to. if they up and encroach too closely to the island of taiwan and she said it gave a given the taiwanese,
6:03 am
the chance to see all the different hardware that tile taiwan can now brandish. but she also had warnings about what the future might hold. this idea of re unification, holding up the example of hong kong because these hong kong is absorbed back into mainland china on to the so called one country to systems process by which a we are one country. but here in hong kong, it is meant to maintain certain freedoms as certain as things like a right of expression, right of association, right? to demonstrate, have a free press, a free expression and so on. at which, arguably, people here in hong kong say, well, in the last few months with the implication application of the national security law, all those freedoms have simply vanished. they have simply gone away and studying when's message was that taiwan which would be absorbed into mainland china. under a similar kind of process really cannot go down that to pass a she really having a warning. let's here to work. this is what she's had to say specifically about the
6:04 am
homecoming example. and what kind of a warning that sends to the people of taiwan they came in kansas younger. yeah, we are faced with a complex and severe challenge. beijing authorities have shown what they've done to hong kong and suppressed hong kong. it's the major development of opening up a reform in history. also in the east china, see the chinese military has a new norm and are threatening us and rob. so how will people in taiwan be viewing this national day? because many, they're view reunification with china as a real threat to their democracy, don't they? well, that's right and saying when said that the basically as no body can a dictate to taiwan, that it has to take a specific path and not even china can do that as a, a path details or out or outlined by mainland china is up to the people of taiwan
6:05 am
to decide their future. and so i think she really speaks on behalf of the, the majority though in the island of taiwan. that there are different approaches when it comes to relations with mainland china that they are out. and they are old chinese people's ad, but when it comes to re unification, that is a, a really divisive issue at times that have been attempts by administrations in taiwan. i'm thinking in particular of the quarman tang, one of the traditional a party of government in taiwan. that was empower for decades towards the end of its time in office on the last administration, the k and t had entered into talks with mainland china that possibly could be leading to some sort of closer relationship we've seen in more recent years. people have simply been turned away from that and as we've seen, more saber rattling, more incursions by warplanes, it seems to make people even more determined in taiwan not to forge
6:06 am
a closer relationship that they do see that re unification would lose the kind of freedoms that they have enjoyed and this national day celebration is really a chance for a tie. want to send a message back to mainland china to say, look, we are a vibrant chinese democracy. we have a very powerful sophisticated military. the doesn't have quite the technological edge that it used to have over mainland china, but it is still a potent force to be reckoned with. and we are a hugely important economy to the world. and that was repeated references by saying when, as taiwan often does it really appeals and sends a message to the international community, we are part of the a world order. the world leads us. the world needs all semi conductors and chips that we produce in such abundance are really making it appeal that if ever it was challenged and is being challenged by china. and if that ever turned into some sort of conflict, it would be looking to help or from its friends, its allies in the rest of the world at rob, just
6:07 am
a final thoughts you before you go. and as you're saying there were talk about china's president, she, she thing yesterday saying he wants to see peaceful reunification with taiwan. yet he's increasing the military component of that pressure. what calculation is beijing making here? there is always this, the implied threat of from bay jing on saturday when she damping was talking about re unification. he stressed that he was peaceful a would be peaceful. there was no use of the word force, but he has talked in more forceful terms. and in the past, and there is this acceptance and understanding that china would never stand for the island of taiwan formerly tried to declare independence and becoming a separate state or country. a trying to regards it as a break away, renegade province. that will be one day re unified. so there is, i think, at a general acceptance that if ever a taiwan took the path of formal independence,
6:08 am
that china would react militarily. and in the past, at the given the military support that taiwan has received from the united states with sophisticated hardware, it's jet fighters and so on. it would, could always guarantee that it could resist any kind of any kind of military challenz. that's not so much the case. now we have had a warning from the defense minister infected just the past week that in just a few years time, given the expansion of the military on mainland china. it's not very long before china would be able to, if it wanted to completely overwhelm and take back the island by force or right, or ra mcbride life, or stay in hong kong. rob, thank you. now is the one, some other news, libya's treatment of migrants and asylum seekers has come under intense scrutiny in the past 24 hours on friday guard shot and killed 6 people at a detention center in tripoli and around 2000 migrants escaped. a, you and refugee office was also forced to close off,
