 A spokesman for the Ministry of national defense answered reporters questions on the PLAs organization of practical exercises near the Taiwan Strait


A reporter asked that in recent years, the US Taiwan interaction has been frequent. Yesterday, the US Deputy Secretary of state visited Taiwan. How do you comment on this? What is the PLAs response to this?

Ren Guoqiang said that from today on, the eastern theater of the Chinese peoples Liberation Army will organize practical exercises near the Taiwan Strait. This is a legitimate and necessary action taken in response to the current situation in the Taiwan Strait and to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity. Taiwan is a sacred and inseparable part of Chinas territory. The Taiwan issue is purely Chinas internal affairs, and no external interference is allowed.

Ren Guoqiang said that recently, the authorities of the United States and the Democratic Progressive Party have stepped up their ties to create frequent incidents. Whether it is to use Taiwan to suppress China or to take advantage of foreign countries, it is wishful thinking. It is doomed to be a dead end, and those who play with fire will burn themselves! The PLA has firm will, full confidence and sufficient ability to thwart all external interference and Taiwan independence separatist acts, and resolutely safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity.
