Mainland slams Lai Ching-te’s ‘Taiwan independence’ remarks

A Chinese mainland spokesperson on Thursday denounced Lai Ching-te, a politician with Taiwan’s Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), for his “Taiwan independence” remarks.

Zhu Fenglian, spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, said that Lai’s provocative remarks will only bring great harm to peace and stability across the Taiwan Straits. Zhu made the comments in response to Lai’s recent remarks inciting confrontation between the two sides of the Straits.

Lai’s remarks once again exposed that the DPP does not hesitate to let the people of Taiwan serve as cannon fodder for its selfish motives, Zhu said, calling on Taiwan compatriots to recognize the extreme danger of “Taiwan independence” and make the right choice to bring cross-Straits relations back onto the right track of peaceful development.
