Survey: About 76% of Taiwanese recognize China as 'unfriendly'

Majority of Taiwanese consider China "unfriendly" and over 90 percent oppose the communist country's efforts to block Taiwan from joining the World Health Organization based on the new poll released by Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council (MAC), reported by Taiwan News.

 MAC, on March 26, released the results of a survey conducted between March 19 and 23 on Taiwanese people's opinions toward cross-strait relations.

The participants were asked in the first question whether they considered China "unfriendly" toward Taiwan's government and people. 

Results state that 76.6 percent said that China is unfriendly toward the Taiwanese government, while 61.5 percent feel the totalitarian regime is unfriendly towards Taiwanese people. When it comes to China's policies toward Taiwan, 90 percent disagree with the Chinese Communist Party's (CCP's) proposed "one country, two systems" model for Taiwan, 90.5 percent oppose Beijing's threat to use force against Taiwan, and 91.5 percent disagree with its suppression of Taiwan in the diplomatic sphere.

On the other hand, 91.6 percent oppose China's exclusion of the country from WHO in the midst of pandemic and feel that it has harmed the health rights and interests of the people of Taiwan.

The MAC commissioned the National Chengchi University Election Study Center to carry out the survey on adults over the age of 20 via telephone from March 19 to 23. It collected 1,089 valid samples with a confidence level of 95 percent and a margin of error of plus or minus 2.97 percentage points.
