Wang Dan: 21 years ago today, 6 May 1989

Chinese dissident Wang Dan answers questions regarding the consequences of lifting of the European Union embargo on arms sales to China, Sunday, Sept. 12, 2004, in Taipei, Taiwan.

Taiwan and China split amid civil war in 1949, but Beijing still claims self-ruled Taiwan to be a part of its own territory and hasn't ruled out military action to reunify.
