The Chinese mainland resolutely opposes official contacts or military ties in any form between the U.S. and Taiwan, a spokesperson said on Wednesday.
Ma Xiaoguang, spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the remarks at a press conference in response to news that two U.S. Navy vessels crossed the Taiwan Strait on Oct. 22.
“Taiwan’s issue bears on China’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
“We resolutely oppose official contacts or military ties in any form between the U.S. side and Taiwan region, and our stance is consistent and clear.
“Those who rely on foreign forces to build themselves up and collude with foreign forces to undermine peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait will certainly pay a price for their deeds,’’ he said. (Xinhua/NAN)
