The US intentions on Taiwan are known to everyone, and US efforts to contain China through Taiwan are nothing more than a pipe dream, Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Wu Qian said on Thursday.

Noting that Washington is constantly eroding and undermining the principle of a united China, Wu Qian warned that any such actions would only harm the United States itself.
Wu Qian stated that there is only one China in the world, and Taiwan is an integral part of it, and the government of the People’s Republic of China is the only legitimate government representing all of China.
“ This is the general consensus of the international community and the generally recognized norm of international relations ,” he stressed.
Wu Qian pointed out that the recent visits of some US senators to Taiwan, where they made provocative statements, were the pursuit of cheap effect and political PR.
” China strongly opposes this ,” Wu Qian added.
” Those who say they will make the Chinese mainland pay the price, let them prepare to pay it themselves ,” he warned sternly.
