Wu Qian:Taiwan is an inalienable part of China. The Taiwan question is at the core of China's core interests. We will strive for the prospect of peaceful reunification with utmost sincerity and efforts. However, should “Taiwan independence” separatists provoke or coerce us, or even cross the red line, we will be compelled to take resolute measures to safeguard national sovereignty and territorial integrity. This echoes with the firm will of over 1.4 billion Chinese people and is the sacred mission of the PLA.
“Relying on US support for independence” is bound to fail, and “resisting reunification by force” leads to nowhere. No matter who tries to split Taiwan from China in any form, the PLA will never accept it and will take resolute measures.
