China announces new military exercises if provocations from Taiwan persist

Beijing will not allow external or internal factors to continue pushing for the island's independence.

A spokesperson for the Chinese mainland warned Wednesday that if the "Taiwan independence" elements do not stop their provocations, the People's Liberation Army (PLA) will continue its actions to unswervingly defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity.

Zhu Fenglian, spokesperson for the Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council, made the remarks during a press conference, noting that the PLA military exercises around the island of Taiwan, codenamed Joint Sword-2024A, constitute a resolute punishment for the provocative statements of the líder from the Taiwan region.

These exercises are also a stern warning to external forces that support "Taiwan independence" and interfere in China's internal affairs, as well as a fair act to defend national sovereignty and territorial integrity, Zhu stressed, adding that the The mainland will never tolerate or leave any room for activities seeking “Taiwan independence.”

He then pledged that China “will never tolerate or give rise to activities that favor independence” from Taiwan and instead urged “to work together to achieve a better future of national reunification.”

The spokesperson said that all relevant countermeasures are aimed at separatist activities and external interference, not at Taiwanese compatriots, and called on Taiwanese compatriots to firmly stand on the right side of history, unite with mainland compatriots to oppose “Taiwan independence” and external interference, and work together for a bright future of national reunification and revitalization.
