Zhu Fenglian, spokesperson of the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, answers journalists’ questions at a regular press conference in Beijing, March 30, 2019.A Taiwanese journalist asked that Chen Ming-tong, head of Taiwan’s security department, said that “cross-Straits relations will be no problem” under Tsai Ing-wen’s presidency.Under the Taiwan Relations Act, the U.S. will be more involved if there is a conflict with Taiwan.What is your comment on that?Zhu fenglian said that in recent days, the DPP authorities have repeatedly made wild statements on the situation in Ukraine to try to “feel their presence”.As a matter of fact, more and more Taiwan compatriots have come to see from the DPP authorities’ self-comforting lies that they are cowardly and bully, and the truth that external forces are unreliable and untrustworthy.Zhu fenglian said the Taiwan issue is fundamentally different from the Ukraine issue. Taiwan is an inalienable part of China’s territory and the Taiwan issue is entirely China’s internal affair, which does not involve external forces.The future of Taiwan lies in the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations and the realization of national reunification, rather than relying on the “empty promises” of any external force.We warn the DPP authorities that they will face a head-on blow if they continue to misjudge the situation, take the road of “Taiwan independence” in a misguided way and bet on external forces.The Taiwan reporter also asked that a recent poll in Taiwan showed that the public’s confidence in “US assistance in defending Taiwan” has declined, and 50% of the people do not agree with the suggestion that “the two sides may end up in a war”.Any comment on that?In response to the inquiry, Zhu fenglian said that more and more Taiwan compatriots realize that external forces are manipulating taiwan-related issues with the aim of “using Taiwan to control China” at the expense of the interests of the Taiwan people.The DPP authorities painstakingly concocted the hoax that “if Taiwan is in trouble, the United States will come to help” has long been bankrupt.Zhu fenglian said that the future of Taiwan and the security and welfare of Taiwan compatriots lies in the peaceful development of cross-Straits relations and national reunification.We hope that our Compatriots in Taiwan will work with us to bring cross-Straits relations back to the right track of peaceful development, resolve the political confrontation between the two sides, achieve lasting peace across the Taiwan Straits and realize the vision of national reunification.The Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council said recently that it will carefully listen to and study the proposal of a CPPCC member to enact a “national reunification Law”.Can this be interpreted as a sign that the Mainland has officially considered the law?Zhu fenglian said that I have already answered relevant questions at the last press conference.National unification is the general trend of The Times and is inevitable.In light of developments and changes in the situation, we will strengthen the use of the rule of law and its strength to combat “Taiwan independence” secessionist forces and advance the process of national reunification.Sichuan Watch (source: Beijing Daily)
