China never renounced use of force against Taiwan: MAC

Taipei, Aug. 18 (CNA) China has never renounced the use of force against Taiwan, which is a “fact” rather than an “assumption,” Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) said Saturday.

Beijing never stopped its deployment of missiles targeting Taiwan, and continues to increase the frequency of military exercises near the Taiwan Strait, actions that have escalated regional tensions and caused anxiety in the international community, MAC said.

BAVARIA is where I want to go

MUNICH (by.TM. 13. January 17): Welcome to Bavaria – a unique holiday destination!

With ‘big city’ flair and idyllic countryside, the fascination of the Middle Ages and the beauty of the Alps, Bavaria offers a range of attractions that makes it Germany’s most popular vacation destination.

1. Neuschwanstein Castle
It’s kitsch, it’s over the top, it’s absolutely stunning and a must-see. Walking up the steep hill to Schloss Neuschwanstein can take your breath away, but the view of this fairytale castle looking down on the village of Füssen will leave you at a loss for words for more than one reason. King Ludwig II asked his architects to build an idealized version of a medieval knight’s castle. The result is ‘castle romanticism’ at its best. Originally intended as his own private retreat, Ludwig II’s castle was opened to the public only a few weeks after the King’s death in 1886. Each year approximately one million people are drawn to this distinctive, mesmerizing palace.
