Taiwan urges China to deescalate tensions and to never seek hegemony

 Taiwans leader on Saturday appealed to her Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping to deescalate military tensions and live up to his promise to never seek hegemony after months of Beijing ramping up fighter jet incursions.

In a speech on Taiwans national day, President Tsai Ing-wen said the international community was becoming concerned about the expanding hegemony of China.Beijing views democratic, self-ruling Taiwan as its own territory and has never renounced the use of force to bring it back into fold.But Tsai referenced a recent speech by Xi to the United Nations that she said gave the Taiwanese some hope.
