Lu Shaye, the Chinese ambassador to France, is one of the main diplomats of the Chinese Communist Party in the world. He recently said publicly that he would “re-educate Taiwanese” after reunification, sparking controversy.
Lu Shaye told BFM TV: “After reunification, we will re-educate and I am sure that by then, the people of Taiwan will again be in favor of reunification. They will become patriots again.”
His remarks came amid heightened tensions across the Taiwan Strait following U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.
European MP Nathalie Loiseau described Lu Shaye’s remarks as “shameful”.
Patrick Martin Genier, an expert on European studies at Sciences Po, noted that the term “re-education” conjures up images of concentration camps, Soviet and Mao-era labor camps. “Lu Shaye’s statement is incredible! Re-education of 23 million Taiwanese is equivalent to turning the entire island of Taiwan into a concentration camp.”
This is not the first time the 57-year-old ambassador has drawn attention in Paris.
During the epidemic, under his supervision, the Chinese embassy in France began to publish false information about how France was handling the virus, and at one point said nursing home staff had abandoned those in their care and let them die. The French Foreign Ministry summoned him for this.

Gui Congyou, a prominent Chinese wolf warrior diplomat, left his post as ambassador to Sweden in September last year. Local media reported that it was rare to see such a “diplomat without diplomatic means” that political parties in the host country united to demand his removal.
Gui Congyou served as a special envoy at a time of tension between Stockholm and Beijing. Her topic initially revolved around the Chinese Communist Party’s detention of Swedish bookseller Gui Minhai, before turning into criticism of the Swedish government’s restrictions on Huawei and ZTE.
“The Politician” said that Gui Congyou is one of the most fierce wolf warrior diplomats not only in Europe, but also in the entire diplomatic system of the CCP. Sweden’s opposition MPs have repeatedly called for him to be declared “persona non grata”.
Gui Congyou has been controversial since he took office in 2017. He has repeatedly intimidated Swedish journalists, politicians, think tanks and even the government, and is regarded by the Swedish media as a threat to democracy and freedom of speech. Opposition parties, including the Left Party, the Christian Democratic Party and the Sweden Democratic Party, demanded that the Swedish government expel Gui Congyou after he threatened the reporter again in April 2021.
An opinion piece in Sweden’s Dagens Nyheter newspaper, titled “Few diplomats have so little diplomacy,” pointed out that Gui’s fiery demeanor had led normally uncooperative parties to unite to demand his expulsion. He commented that his high-profile move may be to impress domestic officials, and whether he will be rewarded by his superiors remains to be seen.
