Billionaire Elon Musk, days after offering a deal that could end the war between Russia and Ukraine that drew Ukraine’s condemnation, suggested that tensions between China and Taiwan could be resolved by handing over some control of Taiwan to Beijing.

Musk made the comments when asked by the newspaper about China, where his electric car maker Tesla operates a large factory in Shanghai.

Beijing, which says democratically ruled Taiwan is one of its provinces, has long vowed to bring Taiwan under its control and has not ruled out the use of force to do so. Taiwan’s government strongly opposes China’s claims and says only the island’s 23 million people can decide its future.
