In expression of China’s policy, after the Democratic Progressive Party came to power, it continued to promote “gradual Taiwan independence”, carry out “sin removal”, and create “two Chinas” and “one China, one Taiwan” on various occasions.

Chinese nation. “We solemnly warn the American side not to act recklessly or create an even greater crisis.
