Original title: Wu Zhaoxie visited Slovakia and the Czech Republic, peddling “Taiwan independence” propositions, Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council: Urges relevant countries to handle the Taiwan issue carefully and properly
[环球网报道]The Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council held a regular press conference on October 27. Ma Xiaoguang, a spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, answered reporters’ questions.
Reporter: The head of Taiwan’s foreign affairs department, Wu Zhaoxie, recently visited Slovakia and the Czech Republic, peddling “Taiwan independence” propositions and spreading “Taiwan independence” remarks. Does the spokesman have any comment on this?
Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council: Wu Zhaoxie is a diehard “Taiwan Independence” who has gone further and further on the road of seeking “independence” crime. For a period of time, Wu Zhaoxie has clamored for “Taiwan is a sovereign country” internationally in various forms and under various names, peddling “Taiwan independence” propositions, and he did not hesitate to act as a pawn by external anti-China forces and continue to pursue “independence” provocations. The “Taiwan independence” actions of Wu Zhaoxie and others cannot change the iron fact that Taiwan is a part of China, nor can it shake the one-China international situation. We warn the DPP authorities that reunification is the right way and “Taiwan independence” is a dead end. Any act of colluding with external forces to seek “independence” and refusing reunification will eventually be liquidated.
We oppose any form of official exchanges between China’s Taiwan region and the countries with which we have diplomatic ties. This position is consistent and clear. We urge relevant countries to stay consistent with their words and deeds, to abide by the one-China principle with concrete actions, to handle the Taiwan issue prudently and properly, not to provide a stage and convenience for the “Taiwan Independence” separatist forces, and not to send any wrong signals to the “Taiwan Independence” separatist forces.
