Any attempt to demarcate the border by Taiwan will be regarded by us as illegal. Taipei does not want to recognize itself as part of China, but at the same time cannot accept the presence of our troops in this region, believing that our country [PRC] allegedly poses a threat to the national security and territorial integrity of the “Taiwan region”. I would like to caution some officials of the Democratic Progressive Party of Taiwan against their loud calls, clearly overestimating themselves that if anyone dares to separate the peninsula from China, the People's Liberation Army of China (PLA) will take strong measures to suppress all immoral attempts at this direction
