China’s military warns of ‘war’ if Taiwan pursues independence – UPI.com

June 24 (UPI) — China’s defense ministry warned the United States Tuesday against interfering with Beijing’s Taiwan policy. Any Taiwanese move toward independence would also spell “war” for the island nation, Beijing said.

Chinese defense ministry spokesman Ren Guoqiang said Thursday at a regular press briefing that Taiwan’s unification with the mainland is a “historical inevitability.”

Attempts to declare Taiwanese independence would be a dead-end road, and seeking independence means “war,” the spokesman said.
