Beijing, Apr 28 (Prensa Latina) China made a strong warning to Taiwan on Tuesday about the serious danger for regional peace and the population posed by the development of secessionist activities, like the organization of a constitutional referendum.
Zhu Fenglian, a spokeswoman for the office of the Council of State (Cabinet) for Taiwan affairs, rejected the recollection of signatures by some organizations to promote that kind of plebiscite.
'Its purpose is obvious. The independence of Taiwan is contrary to the historic trend and will end in a deadlock,' the spokeswoman noted.
Zhu warned that the separatist actions will seriously damage the common interests of the population of Taiwan and mainland China, threaten peace and will only push that territory into 'a dangerous abyss' with serious consequences for its own residents.
'We will never allow anyone, any organization or any party (…) to separate any portion of Chinese soil from China,' said Zhu, who stressed Beijing's strong will, confidence and capacity to deal with any effort in that regard. jg/oda/ymr [FULL STORY]
