China would 'crush' any Taiwan secessionist attempts

China's military forces would "resolutely crush" any secessionist attempts that would try to secure Taiwan's independence from Beijing as well as foreign interference in the country's internal affairs, Defense Ministry spokesman Wu Qian said on Monday.

The spokesman also confirmed that Beijing would continue conducting military exercises in the region and safeguard China's territorial integrity. Commenting on the relations with the United States, he noted that the recent visit to Taiwan made by US senators violated the China-US joint communiques and destabilized the region.

"Taiwan is part of China," Wu concluded.
