Luo Zhizheng said that when China handles the diplomacy of the head of state, it is very important to arrange the itinerary. Former US President Clinton visited China for the first time during his tenure. Ask Cai Mingyan why the CCP agreed to Ma Ying-jeou's itinerary, what are the so-called people, things, time, place, and things, what do you think of "people" and "time".
Cai Mingyan said that because "this year is the first year of democratic consultation on the Taiwan proposal of one country, two systems", this is a political consideration, and the second is the timing, which overlaps with the time planned for President Tsai's visit.
Luo Zhizheng asked whether China wanted to create an image of Taiwan standing with China through the former president of Taiwan's visit to China at this time.
Cai Mingyan said that China's plans for foreign dignitaries have political assessments and calculations in it; Tanaka Hikari, Political Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said that he agrees with Cai Mingyan's statement.
Luo Zhizheng said that he asked Japanese people about Ma Ying-jeou's itinerary, and they couldn't understand it, because "there is no anti-communist point in it, only anti-Japanese", and there are ruins mourning the Republic of China, obviously because this is China's cognitive warfare. And anti-Japanese, calling on the National Security Bureau to respond to the CCP's cognitive warfare and international propaganda.
In this regard, Cai Mingyan said that the National Security Bureau will pay close attention to whether there will be cognitive operations during Malaysia's visit to China.
Luo Zhizheng also pointed out that the cognitive warfare in the cross-strait war has already begun, and asked Cai whether he agreed with this statement.
Cai Mingyan said, "Yes, I agree, this is the top priority of our work." As for the strategic goal of the CCP's cognitive warfare, Cai Mingyan said, of course, it is to affect the hearts of the people in Taiwan, mainly affecting Taiwan people's foreign relations and cross-strait relations. Weaken Taiwan people's confidence in international connections and foreign exchanges.
Finally, Luo Zhizheng appealed that the war has already been fought, and the cognitive warfare has begun. The CCP may take advantage of Ma Ying-jeou's visit to manipulate the strategic goals of suspicion of the United States, anti-American, and anti-Japanese. Cai Mingyan said, "I respect the analysis of the committee members."
