From The Japan Times Online:
The agenda for the current National People’s Congress of China reportedly includes an antisecession bill for preventing the independence of Taiwan. The Chinese leadership wants to have the bill enacted by the end of the session on March 14. The contents of the draft legislation have not been made public, but according to reports in Hong Kong newspapers and other sources, it embodies Beijing’s intention to resolve the Taiwan problem by “nonpeaceful means” in the event certain conditions arise. The conditions that are listed in the bill reportedly include a declaration of independence by Taipei, an outbreak of riots in Taiwan and military intervention by foreign forces.
