China’s “united front” efforts targeting Taiwan are ubiquitous, and include the employment of Internet celebrities to carry out infiltration campaigns on social media, members of the Mainland Affairs Council’s (MAC) Advisory Committee said yesterday.
The council released the minutes of a committee meeting on China’s “legal war” against Taiwan and possible response measures.

Committee members and academics who attended the meeting were not named in the minutes. [FULL STORY]
