Ma Xiaoguang, spokesman for the Chinese Bureau for Taiwan Affairs, said the current tensions were the result of the “collusion” of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) with foreign forces and the “provocations” over Taiwan’s independence.

Chinese exercises target this cooperation – a disguised allusion to U.S. support for Taiwan – and separatist actions, as well as upholding the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and maintaining cross-strait peace and stability, he said.

Taiwan claims that it is an independent country known as the Republic of China that will maintain its independence and democracy.

Despite Ma’s remarks, both Chinese President Xi Jinping and Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen gave comparatively conciliatory speeches over the weekend, despite Xi promising to annex Taiwan and Tsai saying they would not be forced to submit to China.

Chinese soldiers carried out beach landings and assault maneuvers in the southern part of Fujian province, across the Taiwan Sea on Monday.

According to the official daily of the People’s Liberation Army, the attack included “shock” troops, spiers and watercraft specialists.

Tensions over Taiwan are mounting.

After former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott visited Taiwan, pledged support for the island and recognized Taipei’s achievements, Beijing submitted “solemn declarations” to Canberra on Monday.
