Taipei, Sept. 26 (CNA) Taiwanese entertainers interested in performing at China's National Day celebration event should stay away to avoid being exploited for political propaganda, Taiwan's Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) said in a statement Saturday.

The MAC voiced its concerns amid media reports that Ouyang Nana (歐陽娜娜) would sing "My Mother Country" along with Chinese entertainers at a show on Sept. 30, the day before China's National Day, and that Angela Chang (張韶涵) also intended to participate in the same event.

The MAC discouraged them from taking part, arguing that such behavior would hurt the national identity of the Republic of China (Taiwan).

Those who insist on performing at the event could possibly violate cross-Taiwan Strait regulations, the council said, warning that it will monitor the event closely.   [FULL  STORY]
