China Daily reporter Zhao Lei confirms that the new Aircraft Carrier’s name - Fujian - is purposefully chosen to “send a message to the world”

Note: In the image “National sovereignty and interests” very clearly refers to Taiwan Island.

  • In Qing dynasty Taiwan was a part of Fujian and now Taiwan is a province, the same as Fujian province. Taiwan nowadays is not a part of Fujian. BTW ROC has Fujian province too, though it only contains one city"金门". Weyland is not wrong. Taiwan and Fujian have many things in common, most Taiwanese’ ancestors were from Fujian and they both speak 闽南语
