The root cause of the current tension in the Taiwan Straits is due to the DPP authorities’ stubborn adherence to the secessionist stance of “Taiwan independence “and engagement with external forces for provocation against the mainland, while external forces play the “Taiwan card” and use the island to contain the mainland, Ma said.
He urged the US to fulfill its political commitment to not support “Taiwan independence” and stop sending wrong signals to “Taiwan independence” forces.
Language resolutely opposing and deterring separatists who seek “Taiwan independence” was added to the Constitution of the Communist Party of China at the 20th CPC National Congress, which concluded on Saturday.
“‘Taiwan independence’ is the biggest obstacle to the reunification of the motherland and a serious danger to national rejuvenation,” Ma said.
The addition to the Party Constitution was made in response to the current cross-Straits situation and reflects the will of the Party and the wishes of the people, he said.
