Tensions between China and Taiwan are rising. Nancy Pelosi's visit to the Island territory has spurred Beijing into a rave of military exercises. Whether Taiwan will become another Ukraine is a question political and social experts aren't able to answer yet.

One of the experts who have opinions over the China and Taiwan news includes Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who feels the two Asian countries can reach a comfortable agreement. Musk laid out a plan to abate the tensions during an interview with Financial Times

"My recommendation... would be to figure out a special administrative zone for Taiwan that is reasonably palatable, probably won't make everyone happy," he said.

"And it's possible, and I think probably, in fact, they could have an arrangement that's more lenient than Hong Kong." 

Recall that Elon Musk's poll on the Russia-Ukraine crisis drew massive reactions, including that of Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy.

Nonetheless, the Chinese ambassador to the United States, Qin Gang, applauds the technocrat's idea. According to the diplomatic representative, a "One Country, Two Systems" structure would be the panacea. He further said that Taiwan would enjoy a high degree of autonomy as a special administrative region upon the Strait reunification.
