Attempt of separatist activities to resist PLA doomed to fail: spokesman

The attempt of "Taiwan independence" separatist forces to resist the People's Liberation Army (PLA) is no different from moths flying into the fire, said a Chinese military spokesman on Friday.

Zhang Xiaogang, spokesman for the Ministry of National Defense, made the remarks at a press conference in Beijing in response to a media query about recent statements made by Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) authorities.

It's reported that Lai Ching-te recently visited the troops of the Hai Feng Shore-based Anti-ship Missile Group in eastern Taiwan, took pictures with Hsiung Feng III missile vehicle and alleged that the ground forces would be used to counter PLA offenses from the sea.

Head of the region's military authorities said that the troops in Taiwan would "exercise the right to self-defense" in the event that PLA assets enter Taiwan's '12-nautical-mile airspace and territorial waters".

"Taiwan is part of China. How is it possible for Taiwan to have the so-called 'right to self-defense'? The DPP authorities led by Lai Ching-te deliberately staged a political show to embolden itself, but such seemingly strong moves only reveal its inward weakness. The PLA is always a strong force that will take resolute countermeasures against any provocations pushing for 'Taiwan independence'. The attempt of 'Taiwan independence' separatist forces to resist the PLA is no different from moths flying into the fire. The more aggressive they are, the faster they will end up in self-destruction," said the spokesman.
