China News Service, February 28 (Xinhua) The Taiwan Affairs Office of the State Council held a regular press conference on the 28th. Taiwan Affairs Office spokesperson Zhu Fenglian answered reporters' questions on recent cross-strait hot issues.

  A reporter asked: U.S. Secretary of State Blinken’s recent so-called “dinner table theory” has attracted public attention on the island. Many netizens on the island are worried and lamented that “Taiwan is just a dish on the American menu.”

We have also noticed that a previous report released by the US think tank "Center for Strategic and International Studies" pointed out that some international experts believe that in their countries and regions, the United States is regarded as a key factor in the rising tensions in the Taiwan Strait.

What is the spokesperson's comment on this?

  In this regard, Zhu Fenglian said that the situation you mentioned shows that the international community is increasingly aware of the nature of the Taiwan issue and that it is the "Taiwan independence" separatist forces and the external forces that attempt to use "Taiwan independence" to contain China's development that undermine the stability of the Taiwan Strait.

History and reality have fully proved that "Taiwan independence" is the biggest threat to peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait. Any connivance and support for "Taiwan independence" forces will undermine peace across the Taiwan Strait.

  Zhu Fenglian pointed out, why are more and more Taiwanese people beginning to no longer trust the United States?

Because they have seen clearly that the United States puts its own interests first at all times. For the United States, Taiwan is purely a "chess piece" to contain China's development. The so-called "supporting Taiwan" is actually harming and destroying Taiwan. Taiwan will be "taken from" at any time. "chess piece" becomes "abandoned piece".

You may have paid attention to the poster "Go Home" released by the Eastern Theater Command on February 24. There are four sentences in the poster, "Little hands grasp big hands, and come out of the fire pit hand in hand; only by lighting lamps to drive away demons can you win by going home." These four sentences This sentence illustrates one thing very vividly: "Taiwan independence" is a dead end, and outsiders cannot be trusted.

  Zhu Fenglian also pointed out that we hope that all walks of life in Taiwan and the majority of Taiwan compatriots will work with us to promote the peaceful and integrated development of cross-Strait relations and protect the peaceful homeland where compatriots on both sides live peacefully. Only in this way can we bring tangible benefits and benefits to Taiwan compatriots.
