[Reporter Zhong Lihua/Taipei Report] President Tsai Ing-wen led a delegation to visit Guatemala and Belize and other friendly countries from today (29) to April 7. Regarding the possible meeting with US House Speaker McCarthy during the transit in the United States, China’s Taiwan Affairs Office spokesperson Zhu Fenglian declared that she firmly opposes this and will definitely take measures to resolutely fight back.

In an exclusive interview with this newspaper, Qiu Taisan, chairman of the MAC, pointed out that it is conceivable that China will have a reaction. Whether the reaction is strong, medium or weak, the government has various situations to judge whether it is military, diplomatic, or cross-strait.

The MAC also emphasized a few days ago that the president of the Republic of China already has a lot of practice in visiting and passing through relevant countries. Our country is a sovereign country, and normal exchanges with the international community meet the expectations of all citizens. The CCP has no position to make inappropriate remarks.

Zhu Fenglian said that the so-called "transit" by the leaders of the Taiwan authorities is essentially a provocative act of "relying on the United States to seek independence" in an attempt to create "one China, one Taiwan" and "two Chinas" and other incidents that violate the one-China principle.

Zhu Fenglian said that out of self-interest in "independence" politics, the DPP authorities have created various excuses and used various opportunities to engage in "independence" activities.

Waiting for an opportunity to peddle the idea of ​​"Taiwan independence" internationally and seek the support of anti-China forces in the United States.

Zhu Fenglian claimed that Tsai Ing-wen's "transit" does not mean staying at the airport or a hotel honestly, but using various pretexts to contact US government officials and members of Congress, engage in official exchanges between the US and Taiwan, and link up with external anti-China forces.

Contacting US House Speaker McCarthy will be another provocation that seriously violates the one-China principle, damages China's sovereignty and territorial integrity, and undermines peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.

Zhu Fenglian said that China urges the U.S. to strictly abide by the one-China principle and the provisions of the three Sino-U.S. joint communiqués, not to arrange for Tsai Ing-wen to make cross-border visits or even contact with U.S. officials, and to fulfill her solemn promise not to support "Taiwan independence" with concrete actions.
