The spokesperson stressed that separatism “betrays the national well-being and deviates from the desire of the people”endangering the “sovereignty, security and development interests” of the country.

Chen denounced the efforts of certain groups in Taiwan to “seek external support and deliberately provoke cross-Strait confrontations and opposition, hindering and preventing normal exchanges and interaction.”
