A Chinese mainland spokesperson warned on Wednesday that it is very dangerous for the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authority in Taiwan to collude with the United States and use military means in its attempts to seek “Taiwan independence.”
“We firmly oppose any official exchange and military contact between the United States and Taiwan,” Zhu Fenglian, a spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, said at a press conference when responding to reports that the United States had sent Marine Corps to Taiwan.
Zhu urged the DPP authority to immediately stop collusion with the United States in any form and do not go further down the dead-end road of seeking “Taiwan independence” and do not drive Taiwan compatriots to disasters.
The DPP authority’s moves to bank on foreign support and develop relations with the United States under the pretext of economy and commerce will only plunge Taiwan into a situation where it is further manipulated by the United States, and harm the interests of Taiwan compatriots, Zhu said.
Zhu stressed that Taiwan question is China’s internal affairs and allows no external interference.
She urged the U.S. government to earnestly abide by the one-China principle and the three China-U.S. joint communiques, and prudently and properly handle Taiwan-related issues.
